Palestinians from Syria with Disabilities Most Affected by Syrian Warfare

More than 2,300 Palestine refugees with disabilities in Syria have had their lives marred by the unabated warfare and bloody strife rocking the Syrian territories.

UNRWA has upon more than one occasion sounded the alarm over the tragic situation endured by children with disabilities, among them seven-year-old Aya whom Pierre Krähenbühl mentioned in a report published earlier this year. Aya underwent limb amputation due to a mortar shell offensive.

UNRWA said it assists more than 2,300 Palestine refugees with disabilities in Syria. Assistance to the most vulnerable Palestinian refugees, including persons with disabilities, is provided by donors like the European Union. The European Commission's civil protection and humanitarian aid department (ECHO) has funded assistance to those with disabilities, as well as female-headed households.  

“Persons with disabilities are historically marginalized, and even more so during humanitarian emergencies,” said Acting Commissioner-General Christian Saunders in statements marking the International Day of Persons with Disabilities. “This must change and the needs of persons with disabilities should be an integral part of any effective development and humanitarian response.”
