Press Release by the Action Group for Palestinians of Syria about the UNRWA’s Decision of Suspending Shelter Allowance Aid for the Palestinians of Syria in Lebanon

The AGPS condemns the sudden announcement of UNRWA, through its General Director in Lebanon, Mr. Matthias Schmale, about the suspension of the urgent aid related to cash allowance of shelter against all Palestinians of Syria in Lebanon. The decision will be implemented starting from July 2015, following a similar decision where aid was suspended for about 1200 Palestinian Syrian refugee families in Lebanon since October 2014. 

The AGPS denounces the continuous reduction of urgent aid for Palestinians of Syria in Lebanon, regarding the consequent aggravation of their misery and suffering, and a threat to their social security and their right to live in dignity, so, the AGPS is:

■ Calling UNRWA to immediately undo this injustice decision against 43,000 Palestinians of Syria in Lebanon, to continue providing them with its urgent aid till their plight ends, and not to evade its direct responsibility towards the Palestinian refugees
■ Calling the International society to bear its responsibilities towards the cause of Palestinian refugees, to fulfill its obligations towards them, and to take serious actions in order to resolve the problem of permanent incapacity of UNRWA’s fund in order to avoid its repercussions on refugees
■ Calling the Arab League and the Palestinian Authority to urgently intervene in order to prevent the implementation of this decision, and to put pressure on UNRWA so as to cancel it
■ Calling the civil society institutions to take actions against the austerity and reduction policy followed by UNRWA against the Palestinian refugees

 In this regard, Mr. Ahmed Hussein, the AGPS coordinator, stated that UNRWA's decision on the pretext of lack of funding, does not absolve them of responsibility, and the stricken refugee should not pay the price of international donors evasion of their responsibilities, especially as we are talking about an international organization of the United Nations that has enough of solutions by its direct custody over the Palestinian refugees through UNRWA.  Mr. Hussein stressed that UNRWA is demanded to resume aid and even increase it under the harsh conditions experienced by the Palestinians inside and outside Syria, calling at the same time all official Palestinian bodies to take action and to bear its natural functions towards what is happening.
