Winter poses threat: Help us take action for Syrian refugees

Winter poses threat:
Help us take action
for Syrian refugees

Dear Tracy,

Make-shift tents are no match for winter winds.

Amnesty research teams have been working on the front lines of the refugee crisis in Greece, Hungary and Jordan; documenting human rights abuses, inspecting detention centers and pressuring governments - like those of the UK, U.S. and Canada - to take in more refugees.

But we're now under added pressure - winter will pose additional risks to refugee families.

Please make an urgent donation to Amnesty so we can advocate for families who have risked everything to find security.

Right now, we are:
  • Advocating for safe routes to be opened for refugees as they seek sanctuary
  • Calling for improved humanitarian access for the most vulnerable Syrians so they can get blankets and other winter essentials
  • Pressuring governments to take in more refugees in advance of winter
  • Urging the U.S. government to move quickly to resettle refugees and ensure enough funding for food and other necessities
  • Investigating human rights abuses and documenting the situation facing refugees in Europe and around the world
Unlike many other organizations, we don't accept funding from governments for our work campaigning for human rights. That would only jeopardize the pressure we can apply.

Please help support our efforts. Donate now.
