Advent Collection 2013: Emergency Aid for Syria

Caritas Finland ADVENT COLLECTION 2013: Emergency Aid for Syria

This year’s Advent Collection will go towards a programme to help Syrians who have fled the unrest to survive a third cold winter in their homeland. According to the UN, in addition to the refugees who have fled in neighboring countries, up to four million Syrians urgently require humanitarian aid within the borders of their home country. Survival has become difficult, supply of electricity has been cut off in many places and there is lack of heating oil.

Once more Caritas Internationalis appeals on behalf of Caritas Syria in order to supply emergency aid to the crisis hit area. By the end of August, more than 5,000 families had received emergency aid in more than five different districts. Caritas Syria registers families who have fled unrest and grants support in the form of rent assistance, stoves and heating oil. Moreover, families are given thousands of blankets, clothing and shoes ahead of the winter.
Support in our project and help us share warmth with the families!
A proportion of the Advent Collection proceeds will be used for the immigrant work.

Best wishes for Christmas and the New Year!
