Palestinians from Syria Appeal for Increase in UNRWA Aids

Palestinians from Syria Appeal for Increase in UNRWA Aids

Palestinian activists in Syria stressed the need to sustain and increase UNRWA's financial aids to Palestinian refugees in Syria.

In posts circulated on social media, activists said that UNRWA’s intent to conduct a survey in early 2020 over whether Palestinian refugees prefer in-kind or cash food assistance does not make sense at a time when refugees are in need of urgent aids, financial and in-kind.

The activists called on UNRWA to enhance its health services, supply the clinics with the needed medicines, and strike deals with other doctors.

They further stressed the need for the Agency to improve teaching methods, after results in UNRWA schools have gone remarkably downhill.

The activists also launched distress signals over the price hike, absence of relief assistance, and high rates of unemployment.

Human rights data indicates that the majority of Palestinian refugees in Syria (PRS) have been living below the poverty line. After eight years of conflict, PRS 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.

A vulnerability assessment conducted by UNRWA in December 2017 estimated that 90 per cent of Palestine refugee households in Syria live in absolute poverty (less than US$ 2 person/day) prior to receiving UNRWA cash assistance. As a result, it is expected that a large majority of the Palestine refugee population will continue to rely on UNRWA humanitarian assistance to meet their most basic needs in the years to come.

In 2018, UNRWA estimated that 438,000 Palestine refugees remained in the country out of 560,000 inpiduals registered with the Agency in Syria.  Displacement, loss of assets and livelihood, and high levels of inflation have contributed to the increased vulnerability of civilians, including the Palestine refugee population.

Many families have lost their main breadwinner, whether through death, incapacitation, detention or departure to another country in order to seek protection and asylum.

Almost 60 per cent of Palestine refugees have been displaced at least once since the beginning of the conflict and, according to UNRWA estimates; more than 180,000 have had their homes destroyed or severely damaged due to hostilities.
