Our teams are coordinating with Governments and partners to respond to the needs of those affected.  

Freezing weather, snowstorms, power outages, water supply service interruption, and significant public infrastructure damage threaten people and reduce access to essential services.  

We need your help to provide urgent relief items, including shelter, winter clothing, mobile heaters, and blankets to those in need.
