Winter is coming – not only to Europe, but also to Syria and to its neighbouring countries. The challenges refugees and IDPs have to face during the cold and wet winter months are big and due to the funding crisis humanitarian organizations will not be able to meet the needs of all vulnerable people. People need shelter, fuel, clothes, medicine, food and much more all over the region. However, the gaps are vast and we all hope that this winter will be a mild one!
I also hope that Europe will be able to safe the people who seek for shelter during the cold winter. Reading the article ‚Winter is coming: the new refugee crisis in Europe‘ on The Guardian draws a very clear picture on the current situation in Europe – not only in general terms on how Europe deals with the growing number of refugees, asylum seekers and migrant, but especially i particular in light of the cold months to come.
