Public Amenities in Jaramana Camp

Activists from Jaramana camp for Palestinian refugees have denounced acts of violence against public premises.

Local sources said the camp said equipment of public facilities have been ravaged in the area.

A number of bus stops and car parkings equipped with awnings were ravaged by anonymous persons. 

Jaramana camp is 8km from Damascus on the road to Damascus International Airport.  The camp was established in 1948.

Before the start of the conflict in 2011, there were over 18,000 Palestine refugees living in Jaramana camp. During the Syrian crisis, the number of Palestine refugees in the camp and the surrounding area increased to 49,000 due to an influx of displaced Palestine refugees from other areas, including the camp of Yarmouk.  As a result, Jaramana has become one of the most densely populated areas of Damascus. Many Palestine refugees took refuge in Jaramana because of the low rent rates.

Many of the refugees worked as street vendors, government employees or in nearby industrial plants. Some inhabitants find work in the informal sector through collecting garbage for recycling. The majority of women are domestic workers in Damascus to supplement family income. Like other areas in Syria, displacement, unemployment, inflation, protection and security risks are among the main concerns shared by Palestine refugees and Syrians alike.
