above: Millions of refugees – like 10-year-old Nour living in Lebanon – are cold, hungry and afraid. Please help them today.
After 18 months of upheaval – lives cut short, freedom restricted, jobs and livelihoods at risk – we can finally see hope on the horizon.
But as many of us prepare for a more normal Christmas this year – perhaps sharing good food with family and friends, maybe looking forward to the future and making plans – millions of refugee children who’ve fled violent conflict are cold, hungry and afraid.
Your gift of €50 could provide refugee families with the food, clean water and shelter they desperately need to survive life in a refugee camp.
Stuck in limbo – unable to go home or move on. Haunted by what they’ve been through. Their childhoods ripped away and their futures uncertain. Packed together in temporary shelters, forced into dangerous work, often separated from family and friends, refugee children have no roadmap towards better days.

10-year-old Nour fled Syria six years ago after she and her siblings were buried alive under piles of rubble. Nour’s mum thanks God her children survived, but she knows they bear the psychological scars of the blast. Even now, four years on, any loud noise still sets them shivering in fear.
