On Int’l Day of Persons with Disabilities: Palestinian Children with Special Needs Launch Cry for Help in Syria

Displaced Palestinian children with special needs have been gripped with dire conditions in the poorly-equipped refugee tents set up north of Syria.

The situation of dozens of children has gone far worse after they lost their parents in the bloody warfare. Others have endured limb amputation owing to the violent onslaughts.

UNRWA said it assists more than 2,300 Palestine refugees with disabilities in Syria have had their lives marred by the unabated warfare and bloody strife rocking the Syrian territories.

Assistance to the most vulnerable Palestinian refugees, including persons with disabilities, is provided by donors like the European Union. The European Commission's civil protection and humanitarian aid department (ECHO) has funded assistance to those with disabilities, as well as female-headed households.   

UNRWA has upon more than one occasion sounded the alarm over the tragic situation endured by children with disabilities, among them seven-year-old Aya whom Pierre Krähenbühl mentioned in a report published months ago. Aya underwent limb amputation due to a mortar shell offensive.

An AGPS correspondent reached out to the concerned bodies in Lebanon in an attempt to garner data about the number and condition of Palestinian children from Syria with disabilities. However, no information has been provided by the contacted parties to that end. A medic said data in this regard falls outside of the clinic’s agenda.
