UNRWA: Food Aids for Palestinian Refugees from Syria in Lebanon to Be Suspended due to Funding Crisis

The United Nations Relief and Works Agency for Palestine Refugees in the Near East (UNRWA) has warned of the imminent suspension of its food assistance services to Palestinian refugees from Syria in Lebanon in case life-saving funds are not immediately raised for the UN Agency.

As part of its 2019 Syria Regional Crisis Emergency Appeal, UNRWA said it requires a further US$ 41.3 million, out of US$ 46.2 needed to provide life-saving emergency services for Palestinian refugees in Lebanon who have been affected by the Syrian conflict across the region.

UNRWA added that the present funds will be used to cover refugees’ education and healthcare needs until September 2019. Other available funds will enable the agency to provide services for the refugees until October.

UNRWA on Monday said 28,598 Palestinian refugees have been taking shelter in Lebanon, according to Statistics until the end of February, with a remarkable decrease from previous years.

In recent reports, AGPS said the number of Palestinians who fled war-torn Syria to Lebanon has dramatically shrunk back over the past few years.

The decrease has been attributed to the mistreatment and crackdowns perpetrated against the refugees in the Lebanese territories, where they have also been denied the right to legal visas, refugee documents, safe accommodation, basic services, relief assistance, free education and healthcare, and access to the local labor market.

A decision issued by the Lebanese authorities in early May 2014 denied the Palestinians of Syria the right to freely enter the Lebanese territories, in an attempt to rein in refugee influx from Syria.

After eight years of conflict, intense hostilities and violence resulting in deaths and injuries, internal displacement, loss of livelihoods, decreases in the provision of public services, and extensive damage to civilian infrastructure continue to disrupt the lives of civilians and severely undermine aid mechanisms. 

Of the estimated 438,000 Palestine refugees remaining inside Syria, 60 per cent have been displaced at least once since the start of the conflict and a third have had their homes damaged or destroyed. Over 120,000 Palestinian refugees from Syria have fled the country to other destinations, where many of them face a precarious and marginalized existence due to their uncertain legal status and limited social protection mechanisms.
