A home can mean many things. Warmth. Good food. Family. It's where many of us go to feel safe and be with the ones we love, especially at this time of year. But for so many refugee families, home no longer exists.
This Christmas, you can give families a sense of home – no matter where they are. You can help us provide immediate shelter, warm meals, blankets and clean water in the toughest places on earth. You can help us reunite families who have been torn apart, giving them a safe space to be together and rebuild their lives. And you can help us give courageous parents who have been through so much the support they need—education, job training, small business loans—to care for their children as they begin a new year.
We hope you will help us support refugee families this holiday season. Your support is more critical today than ever before. Right now, there are more refugees and displaced people than at any other time in history. The Syrian war is still raging on, forcing more families to flee for their lives. Venezuelans are leaving their homes every single day due to violence and economic collapse, and in Yemen, where war has cut off food supplies, power and health care, home has become a place where each day, families struggle to survive
Help us give these families immediate, lifesaving support and a better start to 2020. Home may be far away for refugee and asylum-seeking families, but because of you, rescue is close by.
