UNICEF Regional Director for the Middle East and North Africa Khyret Kabalari said that conflicts, wars and waves of violence in the countries of middle east and Africa as well as illegal immigration and mass exodus and unemployment ... All these things led to a sharp decline in the average of income of  salaries for hundreds of thousands of families,what caused the lack of warmth  this winter and to provide these persons with their needs is difficult and elusive.

"Because of the lack of food and health care, thousands of children suffer from weakness, and their bodies are vulnerable to hypothermia and serious respiratory diseases" Khairat Kabalari said.

He added that if these children did not receive assistance to protect them from frozen weather conditions, they are likely to face serious consequences.

In a press release today, the organization warned that the funding gap, which is close to two-thirds of the total amount it seeks, will hinder its ability to meet its winter assistance requirements.

UNICEF aims to provide 1.3 million children in Syria, Iraq, Jordan, Lebanon, Turkey and Egypt with warm clothing, blankets, water, sanitation, hygiene kits, health care and cash assistance to families.
