UNHCR: Middle East refugees at risk as winter funds shrink

According to the UNHCR, more than 3.8 million refugees and internally displaced people in Syria, Lebanon, Iraq, Turkey, Jordan and Egypt need winter assistance.

A cold weather programme which began last month is aimed at helping the most vulnerable families.

But of the $228m needed to finance this year's winter programme, only $143m has been received - a shortfall of nearly 40 percent.
