Palestinian Families Displaced from Yarmouk Appeal for Urgent Humanitarian Aid

Palestinian refugees seeking shelter in Jdeidat Artouz town, in Rif Dimashq’s western outskirts, after they were displaced from Yarmouk Camp, south of Damascus, said they have not received humanitarian aid donated by charities and relief institutions.

The refugees denounced the “discriminatory” aid distribution process, saying that they have not received relief aid recently distributed as part of a humanitarian campaign launched by the Charitable Association for Palestinian Relief in partnership with the Palestine Today TV channel.

Activists said that over recent days, food parcels were handed over to displaced families in the area. However, Palestinian families displaced from Yarmouk camp have not had access to such relief items.

Palestinian families displaced from Yarmouk refugee camp to Jdeidat Artouz, in Rif Dimashq, are unable to cope with the coronavirus outbreak as they have not received medical assistance by UNRWA.

The residents say no precautionary measures have been taken in the area, where dozens of displaced families live below the poverty line.

Over recent weeks, Palestinian refugees sheltered across the Syrian territories have kept urging UNRWA to assist them in their fight against the novel coronavirus COVID-19.

Recently, AGPS has warned of a projected outbreak of COVID-19 in Palestinian refugee camps in Syria. Though campaigns to help spread awareness among the camps’ residents have recently seen the day, limited access to running water, pharmacies and medical facilities mean displacement camps are more susceptible to the spread of the highly infectious virus.
