Deir Ballout School Opens Doors for Displaced Palestinian Students

The only school in Deir Ballout refugee camp, in Syria’s northern region of Efrin, has opened its doors with the start of the new academic year. The move was kick-started by volunteer activists sheltered in the camp, in cooperation with the Turkish charity AFAD.

Classrooms in Deir Ballout School are taught in makeshift tents equipped with a handful of seats and blackboards.

In 2018, some 250 students, out of 1,500 students taking refuge in Deir Ballout and the adjacent refugee camp of AlMuhammadiya, attended classes at the school. The teaching staff is made up of nine volunteer tutors, a general supervisor, and a director.

Students have been however unable to afford school furniture and winter garments needed with the advent of freezing temperatures in the area.

The displaced families have appealed to UNRWA and other concerned institutions to work on providing the school with the needed equipment and students with furniture.

Palestinian children in refugee camps across the ravaged Syrian territories have been the permanent targets of arbitrary abduction sweeps and human rights violations. Dozens died as a result of undernourishment and medical neglect in besieged refugee camps. Shelling took away the lives of dozens more.
