Khan Eshieh Refugee Camp Grappling with Bread Crisis

Palestinian refugees sheltered in Khan Eshieh camp, in Rif Dimashq, continue to line up for hours outside of the camp’s sole bakery to receive bread via the smart card.

Displaced Palestinian families lashed out at local authorities and bread supplies for manipulating bread distribution, saying they receive only seven bread loafs instead of the allotted 14 loafs.

Speaking with AGPS, a resident said cars parked outside of the local bakery continue to carry large quantities of bread to unknown destinations.

The residents said no special anti-coronavirus measures have been taken in the area, leaving civilians at high contamination risk.

Over recent years, residents of Khan Eshieh camp have spoken up against the poor-quality bread sold in the area, saying it is unfit for human consumption and holding the government’s quality control staff responsible for the crisis.

Living conditions in Khan Eshieh have sharply deteriorated due to the lack of financial resources and high unemployment rates wrought by the raging warfare. A transportation crisis has added bad to worse.

After ten years of conflict, Palestine refugees continue to be one of the most vulnerable groups in Syria with immense humanitarian needs.

Survival for the majority of Palestinian families in war-stricken Syria has largely hinged on relief assistance. The vast majority of families have been living below the poverty line.
