LATTAKIA, Syria, 3 January, 2014 – Huda, 25, lives with her three children, aged 4-7, and her mother in a small rented room in Lattakia city, on Syria’s western coast.

With winter temperatures hitting Syria hard, Huda made her way to a Syrian Arab Red Crescent warehouse in Lattakia city where hundreds of women lined up to receive relief supplies.

Nine months ago, the family fled from the fighting taking place around their home area in Aleppo city.

Huda was particularly grateful to be issued with five UNICEF blankets and a baby hygiene kit: “I am happy to have these blankets,” says Huda. “My children will stay warm now.”
