Out in the Cold
At just 30 years of age, Umm el-Noor is bringing up five children all alone. In Syria, she had a good life. Her husband was a construction worker and the family had their own spacious apartment in a block they shared with her in-laws. Then, her husband was killed, her home destroyed, and she was forced to flee.
She will be spending this winter in a refugee camp and like so many poor and displaced families across the world. Umm el-Noor and her children will be relying on the generosity of people like you to help them survive the cold season.
