UNRWA Transfers Cash Aid for Palestinians from Syria in Jordan

UNRWA has delivered cash grants for Palestinian refugees from Syria in Jordan.

Every registered refugee with Syrian travel documents received a sum of 84.960 Jordanian dinars. PRS with Jordanian passports received 54 dinars.

In its Syria Regional Crisis Emergency Appeal 2020, UNRWA said nearly 100% of Palestine refugee families from Syria (PRS) in Jordan are in critical need of sustained humanitarian assistance.

UNRWA said 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 has reached 17,343 at the end of November 2019, including 349 refugees sheltered in King Abdullah Garden.

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 ten 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.

According to the Agency’s database, of the estimated 438,000 Palestine refugees remaining inside Syria, over 95 per cent (418,000) are in critical need of sustained humanitarian assistance. Some 254,000 Palestine refugees have been displaced at least once since the beginning of the conflict and an estimated 13,500 are trapped in hard-to reach or inaccessible locations.
