Operation Warm & UNICEF Bringing Warmth to Syrian Refugee Children

The ongoing civil war in Syria has devastated the lives of its children. It’s almost unfathomable, the number of Syrian refugee children whose lives have been placed in peril.

5.5 MILLION CHILDREN

It’s a big number. Each one of these children deserves an opportunity for HOPE. Every life is precious.  Every life counts.  We must never make the mistake of presuming that with a problem so vast, there’s nothing we can do to help or that our contribution would be futile. There is a way you can help.

In most pictures depicting this horrific crisis we see the blazing hot sun and sand.  Many don’t realize that winter in Syria is freezing cold and windy, with temperatures dropping as low as minus six and great accumulations of snow. Without aid provided by UNICEF’s winter clothing kits, many children would literally freeze to death.

To donate (and we hope you will), please click here. Your gift is very meaningful and will provide much needed relief from daily despair, illness, poverty, and loneliness. Thank you.
