Palestinians from Syria in Sudan Struggling with Ambivalent Fate

Palestinians from Syria in Sudan Struggling with Ambivalent Fate

Palestinians from Syria have been subjected to abject living conditions in Sudan, where they are treated as foreigners rather than refugees.

Relief institutions have failed to live up to their duties as regards the Palestinian refugee community from Syria, who has been overburdened by the costly fees of visas and registration procedures.

Low wages, high rates of unemployment, and socio-economic marginalization have made life unbearable for Palestinian refugees in Sudan, forcing dozens of refugees to beg in the streets in order to feed their starved families.

Dozens of families who fled to Libya, in a life-threatening journey via the Sudanese desert, attempting to head for Europe onboard the “death boats”, have fallen prey to arbitrary abductions, exploitation, and looting by human traffickers and sea gangsters. 

Palestinians from Syria in Sudan have also been subjected to steep education fees, hitting up to $150 at schools and $3,000 at universities. Calls have been frequently launched to teach Palestinian children at UNICEF-run schools.

The refugees continue to slam the apathy maintained by the Palestine Embassy as regards their humanitarian condition and the difficulties they have been made to endure trying to obtain a Palestinian passport.

Sudan used to be the only country where Palestinians from Syria are let in without complicated legal procedures. A refugee obtains an entry permit from the Interior Ministry at a cost of no more than $100. However, traffickers, who have been taking advantage of the situation, continue to blackmail refugees and force them to pay as much as $1000 to enter the Sudanese territories.

Palestinians from Syria in Sudan are scattered across Khartoum, Khartoum Bahri (North), and Omdurman.
