Families in Syria need your kindness

The conflict in Syria is in its ninth brutal year, and tens of thousands of families have had their lives torn apart. 

Families urgently need food, shelter and medical care.

Imagine going to work every day in a conflict zone for a wage that barely buys enough food for your family - then coming home to your children who are frightened, hungry and struggling to keep warm?

This is everyday life for Sobhi and his family.

Families in Syria, like Sobhi's, are not safe. A freezing winter is on its way and the violence continues.

A small act of kindness can give hope to people who have lost so much.

And this Christmas, that kindness starts with you.
