Palestinian Refugee Children in Syria Denied Access to Food Items via Smart Card

Palestinian Refugee Children in Syria Denied Access to Food Items via Smart Card

A number of Palestinian refugees said their children aged below 15 have been barred from smart cards used by the Syrian government to ration bread and a wider range of subsidized goods, namely fuel, rice, tea, and sugar. 

Several refugee families said they have not received sufficient quantities of bread and food items.

The General Authority for Palestinian Arab Refugees (GAPAR) claimed that Palestinian refugee children cannot obtain a national identification number, unlike Syrian children.

The company operating the smart card said only people having national numbers can receive food items.

After more than a decade of conflict, Palestine refugees continue to be one of the most vulnerable groups in Syria with immense humanitarian needs.

Palestinian refugees in Syria continue to launch cries for help over their deteriorating humanitarian condition due to the sharp decrease in the exchange rate of the Syrian pound compared to the USD and their lack of access to the local labor market. The price leap has also overburdened the cash-stripped refugees. House rents have also seen a striking hike from previous years.
