Displaced Palestinian Refugees in Jordan’s AlHadiqa Camp Launch Cry for Help

Displaced Palestinian Refugees in Jordan’s AlHadiqa Camp Launch Cry for Help

Palestinian families from Syria in AlHadiqa refugee camp, in Ar-Ramtha city, situated in the far northwest of Jordan, have called on the international humanitarian institutions, UNRWA, and the Palestinian Authority to take urgent action in response to the squalid conditions they have been enduring in the camp.

In appeals emailed to AGPS, a displaced Palestinian woman from Syria said the humanitarian situation has taken a tragic turn for the worse, adding that the refugees’ needs far outlive the 85 Jordanian dinars handed over to them by UNRWA every three or four months.

The refugee also said the food allowances occasionally distributed by the UNHCR are insufficient.

She further raised alarm bells over the poor healthcare services provided by the sole doctor in the camp, saying neither medicines nor medical equipment are available in the area.

Some 40 Palestinian families and dozens of Syrian families taking refuge in AlHadiqa Camp have been subjected to abject socio-economic conditions owing to the absence of vital services and the crackdowns perpetrated by the Jordanian authorities.

Palestinian refugees from Syria taking shelter in AlHadiqa refugee camp are also denied free access out of and into the area. In the best of cases, they are granted a three to four-day work permit to feed their starved families.

100% of Palestine refugee families from Syria (PRS) in Jordan need to receive one or more UNRWA emergency assistance interventions especially during winter.

In its 2019 Syria Regional Crisis Emergency Appeal, UNRWA said 30% of Palestinian refugees from Syria (PRS) are highly vulnerable and 31% of recorded PRS are members of female-headed households, which increases their vulnerability.

Due to new arrivals and natural population growth, the number of PRS recorded with the UNRWA in Jordan increased from 16,779 inpiduals in October 2017 to 17,719 at the end of October 2018.

PRS who have entered from Syria and remain in Jordan irregularly are living under continuous risk of arrest, detention and potential for forced return to Syria. Their lack of legal status and corresponding protection risks in Jordan are a source of major concern to UNRWA.

After eight years of conflict, Palestinian refugees in and from Syria continue to face significant humanitarian and protection needs. In the absence of a durable political settlement, 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 have disrupted the lives of civilians and severely undermined coping mechanisms.
