We are in for a cold snap of weather. The forecast says that it won’t get much above freezing for the next week. We don a couple of extra layers and dash to our warm vehicles and then back to our warm houses. We rarely hear of anyone dying due to the cold.
In Iraq it is different. Refugees are freezing to death in Kurdistan camps. In recent days 17 refugee children have frozen to death!
Leeds2Iraq have launched a winter clothing appeal. They are looking for good quality, warm winter clothing/shoes to send to displaced Iraqi families in Dohuk (Iraqi Kurdistan) and donations to help with transporting the clothing.
