Where Winter is Unforgiving

“The winters here are unforgiving, especially for someone like me,” says Lina,* an elderly woman in Syria. “I’ve lived through so much, but this year has brought a new level of hardship. When [Christian workers] handed me the blanket, it was like receiving a piece of comfort I hadn’t felt in years. I wrap it around me at night, and it’s as if all the worries and cold melt away, if only for a moment.”

Like Lina, people in many countries worry about staying warm during the winter months. This worry is especially heavy in places like Syria, where more than a decade of war has brought severe poverty. Your funds have made it possible to encourage such people by giving them a thick blanket that brings comfort and warmth.
