UNICEF distributes new winter clothes to children in northern rural Aleppo Years of violence, displacement and loss of livelihoods have taken a toll on families across Syria who are left unable to provide for their children’s most basic needs, including for warm clothes to fend off the cold winter. Their vulnerability is compounded by their rudimentary living conditions, with many having been forced to flee their homes with nothing but the clothes on their back, while others returned to their damaged houses following a lull in violence, amid a severe lack of services.
