Palestinians from Syria Meet with Refugee Services Organization in Cairo

A meeting was convened on Thursday at UNRWA’s liaison office in Garden City, in Cairo, by representatives of the Palestinian refugee community in Egypt and members of St. Andrew’s Refugee Services.

The delegations discussed developmental and community projects for Palestinian refugees from Syria in Egypt, along with possible ways to enhance health care and education services.

The parties agreed to the need to establish local schools for Palestinian from Syria, hold vocational training courses, implement psychological support programs,  and to provide the displaced refugees with shared shelters and the needed relief assistance.

Palestinian refugees who fled war-torn Syria have been subjected to a fragile legal and humanitarian status in Egypt, where they are treated as foreigners rather than asylum-seekers fleeing war-stricken zones.

Palestinians from Syria in Egypt have been denied the right to legal visas, refugee documents, safe accommodation, basic services, and relief assistance.

Those who illegally entered Egypt via the Sudanese borders have been denied the right to free movement, education, and labor, among other basic necessities. Unlike Syrian nationals, who are granted safe asylum in Egypt and systematically assisted by the UNHCR, Palestinian refugees are left on their own.

AGPS continues to stress the need to secure the rights of the Palestinians from Syria in Egypt, who fall outside of UNRWA’s fields of operations, to legal and physical protection as per the Refugee Convention of 1951 and to hand them over cash and in-kind aids along with refugee cards in order to enhance their legal status in the Egyptian territories.
