Countries of Distribution:
Temperatures here hover between 20 F and 45 F during the months of December to February; and HHRD can appropriately and safely deliver necessary donated Winter Relief items.
These countries and regions include: Syrian & Palestinian Refugees in Jordan & Lebanon, Kashmir Valley (including Sri Nagar), Afghanistan, Pakistan, Jordan, Lebanon, Mexico, Bangladesh, and India.
For millions of Syrians this is their 6th winter away from home, many have left with merely the clothes on their backs. With children to feed and little to no source of income many will perish during these upcoming months.
Frigid temperatures have led to increased health concerns as refugees battle the winter freeze. With Lebanon housing one of the largest make shift camps in the region, refugees are in desperate need of any assistance.
Poverty as a result of monsoon rains, earthquakes, and internal strife haunts many in Pakistan, India, and Afghanistan. Without proper homes, clothes and heating arrangements they too will suffer a bone chilling winter.
Pakistan, host to one of the largest refugee population in the world, houses 1.5 million Afghan refugees who share a similar fate of those living in poverty in the Northern areas. A shortage in proper housing has caused 126,000 children to face malnutrition; this coupled with declining temperatures is a recipe for disaster.
