Fears that UNRWA will stop its aid to the Palestinian-Syrians in Gaza

An atmosphere of pessimism spread among the Palestinian refugees who returned from Syria to Gaza, after reports were heard that UNRWA will cut its cash assistance that it used to provide as a shelter allowance for the Palestinian-Syrians in Gaza.

On his part, Amr Ouda, Member of the follow-up committee of the refugees’ affairs from Syria to Gaza, confirmed to the Action Group that UNRWA is about to stop its assistance for the refugees from Syria to Gaza (shelter allowance) under the pretext of fiscal deficits.

Ouda noted that UNRWA’s decision to stop its cash assistance in this critical timing, will negatively affect the Palestinian families returning from Syria to Gaza, who are already living in accumulated crises and tragic living conditions, due to what the Strip is witnessing from the siege and the un-acknowledgment of refugees by the Palestinian authorities, which has not implemented its decisions or promises towards the refugees. The refugees are unable to travel abroad because they have not received a national number.

Ouda called on the decision makers in UNRWA, through the Action Group, to increase their financial support to the refugees in the Gaza Strip, and to find new sponsors to support it and put pressure on the United States in order not to cancel its financial support.
