Help children stay warm in freezing temperatures
This is January and in many places, winter is still harsh. In regions with conflicts and disasters, many children live without adequate heating in tented camps for displaced people or damaged homes. Buying warm clothes for winter has become a luxury parents can no longer afford.
In freezing temperatures, children are at risk of respiratory illnesses like pneumonia, which impacts their ability to go to school. A lack of adequate and available healthcare only makes matters worse. In the most severe cases, some children—especially babies—can even die from the freezing cold.
UNICEF wants to supply boxes with winter clothing and blankets to children of all ages—from birth through the teenage years. We need your help to reach as many children as possible before winter does.
