Cash Aid Transferred to Palestinians of Syria in Lebanon

Cash Aid Transferred to Palestinians of Syria in Lebanon

UNRWA in Lebanon said new batches of cash aid have been transferred to Palestinian families displaced from Syria.

In a statement, UNRWA said every refugee will receive 70,000 Lebanese pounds as a food grant and an additional sum of 390,000 Lebanese pounds as part of donations made by the EU Trust Fund “Madad”.

UNRWA called on the refugees to keep a distance of at least two meters at bank offices and to regularly wash their hands.

UNRWA has identified PRS in Lebanon as one of the most marginalized and poorest communities in the region.

In its 2020 Syria crisis emergency appeal, UNRWA said that PRS in Lebanon continue to face high vulnerability and marginalization, making them heavily reliant on UNRWA humanitarian support to cover their basic needs. The socio-economic hardships and unrest experienced by the country have compounded PRS’ already dire living conditions.

According to a survey conducted by the American University of Beirut in 2015, nearly 90 percent of the PRS population in Lebanon live in poverty, including 9 per cent who are in extreme poverty and unable to meet even their most essential food requirements.

PRS’s vulnerability is further compounded by their precarious legal status. The lack of a valid legal status, often coupled with outdated civil registration documents, results in severely restricted freedom of movement for some PRS in Lebanon due to fear of arrest, detention or forced deportation.
