“There are more than 1 million Syrian child refugees, help make their
winter warmer. @UNICEFUSA #ChildrenofSyria”

That’s a message that pop singer, Selena Gomez put out into the Twittersphere recently. She also linked to UNICEF’s donation drive page for warm winter clothes for Syrian children. According to their donation page, they hope to provide 100,000 warm winter clothing kits to those children in need.

“UNICEF prepared refugee children and their families for the onset of last year’s cold season by installing heaters and water boilers in the camps, providing heated winter tents for use as classrooms and distributing blankets and clothing packages. The humanitarian effort is much more challenging this winter given a tenfold increase in the number of Syrian child refugees — from 70,000 to more than 1 million — in less than a year,” states UNICEF USA. “While Syria and the surrounding region enjoy a temperate Mediterranean climate in coastal areas, inland regions can become inhospitable in winter. Temperatures fall to 0?F (-17?C) and below; storms and heavy snows are common. For refugees living in tents, exposure to the cold is significant. When it is winter outside, it is winter inside.”

The warm weather clothing kits will include thermal underwear, outerwear, socks, and mittens, and boots for those aged 2 years and older.
