“I thank the Australian people and I am always praying for them because they gave myself and all Syrians great hope. We will always pray for you and for your country to never suffer what we have suffered from.” - Amira*, a Syrian refugee.

The war in Syria has forced children and their families to flee their homes, sometimes with nothing but the clothes on their backs.

These families are now living in Jordan, where winter temperatures dip to below freezing at night. Families struggle to stay warm against the cold, making them vulnerable to illness.

This gift helps a Syrian refugee family keep warm this winter in Jordan. Each parcel contains enough blankets for an entire family.

*Amira’s name has been changed to protect her identity as a refugee.
How Gifts for Peace work

More ways to take action

Right now, children are starving to death in South Sudan. Please give an urgent gift today to halt this famine before it kills even more children.

Take the Act for Peace Ration Challenge and eat the same rations as a Syrian refugee during Refugee Week (June 2018). Raise money to support refugees who have lost everything, and challenge perspectives – including your own.

Right now, thousands of innocent people are fleeing Syria every day to protect their families from bloodshed, violence and death. We need your support to provide emergency relief packs to the families fleeing in Syria.
