Displaced Palestinian Families in Syria’s Deir Ballout Camp Sound Distress Signals

Displaced Palestinian Families in Syria’s Deir Ballout Camp Sound Distress Signals

Some 325 Palestinian families displaced from southern Damascus to the poorly-equipped Deir Ballout refugee camp, north of Syria, continue to launch cries for help over their exacerbated humanitarian situation.

The camp has been a hotbed for snakes and rodents. Civilians have also been subjected to an acute dearth in much-needed food and drinking water.

Children taking refuge in the camps have been unable to pursue their studies as no educational facilities have been established in the area. The lack of healthcare facilities has made the situation far worse. Disease-stricken refugees are treated inside a poorly-equipped makeshift tent-clinic.

Last year, over 100 cases of severe diarrhea were reported among children in the camp. Neither doctors nor medicines are available in the area.

The displaced families continue to lash out at the Turkish Disasters and Emergency Management Authority (AFAD) for blocking their access to relief aids donated during Ramadan month.

The displaced families have called on all concerned parties to take urgent action regarding their calamitous situation and to work on granting them safe access to their homeland—Palestine—or broker their humanitarian asylum in safer destinations. They further urged UNRWA to live up to its moral obligations in this regard.
