68.5 Million People Could Die This Winter
Refugees are at their most vulnerable this Winter. A global displacement crisis has driven over 68.5 million people from their homes. That’s 20 people every minute. Without a place to call home, these refugee families may not survive the winter.
In Bangladesh, Rohingya refugees no longer have a place to call home. In Yemen, parents can not feed their starving children. In Palestine, displaced mothers are trying to keep their children warm and dry. In Lebanon and Jordan, Syrians are facing their eighth winter in exile – for them, enduring the bitter cold has become a yearly struggle.
