SYRIA WINTER PROGRAM–CIRCLE OF WARMTH
In Syria, thousands of internally displaced families are living in tented shelters without the basics for survival.
Imagine spending the winter in a tent…
That’s the reality for thousands in Syria but for three years in a row, Mercy-USA has implemented an innovative program to help alleviate the misery of winter in a tent.
During the winter of 2017-2018 with the help of the United Nations and our donors, Mercy-USA for Aid and Development provided innovative eco-friendly winter heating fuel to approximately 4,000 Syrian families who are displaced from their homes living in rural informal camps and collective shelters in northern Syria.
This was the third year in a row we helped families in Syria stay warm where the winters are unbearable without a heating source. We were proud to provide families with a fuel source that helped the local Syrian economy, was good for the environment and better for the health and well-being of children and their families.
A Circle of Warmth for Syria
Tent homes in Syria stayed warmer with the fuel we distributed during the winter. No more burning plastic or trash to stay warm.
