UNHCR - Vital cash grant gives winter relief to Iraqi refugees in Syria
DAMASCUS, Syria, December 16 (UNHCR) – For the first time since it started helping Iraqi refugees in Syria, UNHCR has been handing out cash grants this month to tens of thousands of vulnerable Iraqis to help them endure the winter.

"For the past four years, Iraqi refugees have been crying out for help to keep their children warm during the tough winter months," said Ayman Gharaibeh, UNHCR's assistant representative in Syria. "It's a relief we finally have the means to provide this support."
At first, Soha struggled to support her three children with her savings, but today she is entirely reliant on UNHCR for financial and food assistance. "Although it will only be a one-time payment, it will still be a great help for me," she said of the grant. "I will be able to pay for fuel with it. Last year we had nothing to heat our house and we really suffered from the cold."

The fact is that professional greenhouse gas management is an emerging field on the cusp of explosive growth.

The media, on the other hand, has had a field day with the cables. "I know for a fact that global warming, climate change, whatever term they attach to it, is nothing more than an attempt to create socialist nations as far around the world as they can and to separate us from our money,” said talk-radio personality Rush Limbaugh during his program after the revelations. “That's all it is and now the whole thing's been exposed as a full-fledged, 100 percent fraud."
