Winter Warmth & Survival for Refugees

We are raising urgently needed funds to provide refugees in Europe, surviving winter in challenging living conditions, with some warmth. For many this will be tents and sleeping bags, for others it might be a hot meal or cup of tea. Many people are homeless and if we don't help them, who will?

Situation

European winters can be long and harsh. Rain, cold winds and snow can leave us feeling cold to the core. Whilst we pop on central heating, put the kettle on, or thaw out in a hot shower, not everyone has these luxuries... Men, women and children living as refugees in Europe are too often homeless, living in tents, squats or camps. Frequently without adequate food, shower or wash facilities, or electricity for cooking, making tea or running a heater. Basic survival is always on their minds.

Solution

By working closely with local grassroots organisations, we respond quickly and without bureaucracy to the most urgent needs on-the-ground across the refugee hot-spots of Europe. Donate4Refugees, within The Refugee Charity Network collaboration in the UK, is uniquely placed to get the right help to refugee men, women and children when they need it over the coldest winter months. This might include a blanket, a pair of boots, a hot meal or paying a heating bill to keep mum and her new born warm.

  • You have no idea how much of a difference you are making and the teams on the ground really appreciate your support.

  • It is true to say that we would not be able to do what we do and to be here every day without you and without all your help.
