Over the winter many families have no money for fuel to provide warmth in their homes with temperatures dropping as low as -20C. Many people are living in dilapidated old buildings badly in need of repair with leaking rooves, no running water or plumbing. Older people living alone have to walk through the snow to use an outdoor toilet. If they are ill they will have to choose between buying food or medicine. Watch this film and find out how you can help here.
