UNRWA Workers Clear Rubble from Deraa Camp

UNRWA staff workers have started clearing debris from Deraa Camp for Palestinian refugees, south of Syria.

On October 15, 2021, UNRWA rehabilitated the Tiberias and AlSafsaf schools along with the local clinic in Deraa Camp.

On September 25, a UNRWA delegation inspected the condition of the Agency’s premises in the camp after the Syrian regime lifted its tough blockade on the area.

The residents expressed hope that life would go back to normal in the ravaged camp in the near future and that reconstruction projects would create employment opportunities.

All the way through Syria’s ten-year conflict, residents of Daraa Camp have been grappling with dire humanitarian conditions owing to the high rates of unemployment and absence of vital facilities.

UN data indicates that Deraa refugee camp is located inside Deraa City, in southern Syria. Palestinian refugees came to the Deraa area in two waves in 1948 and in 1967.

However, as the recent conflict unraveled, the camp became engulfed by violence and 90 per cent of the camp population had to leave the camp and seek safety in other areas such as Deraa city, Damascus or Jordan. Most UNRWA services were moved to alternative premises in Deraa city.

Deraa camp was home to 10,500 Palestine refugees before 2011. As of November 2018, only 400 Palestine refugee families have returned since the camp returned to government hands. As of February 2020, some 800 families had returned to Daraa camp and 750 students to the UNRWA schools.
