Millions of Kids Face Winter Misery

At least seven million internally displaced and refugee children are in desperate need of assistance as bitter winter snows and torrential rains continue to batter the Middle East, the United Nations Children’s Fund said.  UNICEF’s Christophe Boulierac warned that the number of children who need clothes and winter items is increasing exponentially.Temperatures in parts of Syria are currently -11 degrees Celsius.
To respond to the dire needs, UNICEF is delivering warm clothing, blankets, heating supplies, cash and vouchers to 916,000 children in Syria, Iraq, Lebanon, Jordan and Turkey of the 1.3 million target children.
