Blankets may appear like a simple, every-day thing, but this cloak of fleece can be the difference between life and death when homes are destroyed, children are forced to live outdoors and the temperature drops. Blankets offer the gift of warmth and offer crucial protection in emergency situations. Children are facing another freezing winter living in refugee camp tents across Syria. After six years of conflict, Syria is one of the most dangerous places to be a child. Right now, more than 8 million Syrian children are in danger. They face unspeakable violence, a lack of food, healthcare and clean water, and an increased risk of disease. This gift provides one day and night of a UNICEF blanket so that a vulnerable child in Syria can be kept snug and warm, comforted and protected from their surroundings.
This gift supports communities in Syria and costs 78 points on JellyChip.
The target charity is UNICEF.
