UNICEF distributes winter clothes in the city of Ma’adan in Raqqa, northeastern Syria As temperatures continue to drop, thousands of families across Syria are left unable to provide their children with warm winter clothes, after years of displacement, loss of livelihoods and inflation. To help ease the financial burden on families, UNICEF is distributing winter clothing sets to children aged 0 to 14 across the country. Each clothing kit contains a thermal outfit, a winter jacket, woolen hat, scarf and gloves, as well as winter shoes.
