Displaced Palestinian Children North of Syria Launch Cry for Help

Palestinian children who were forcibly deported with their families to Deir Ballout Camp, north of Syria, appealed to the United Nations, UNRWA, and human rights NGOs to lend them a hand in the poverty-stricken area.

In a letter to the UN, the displaced children said they have spent six years of their childhood times under a tough blockade, which had been imposed on Yarmouk Camp, before they were forcibly deported to Deir Ballout, where they have been taking refuge in ramshackle tents.

The children added that they have been denied their basic rights, particularly their right to education, medical care, and relief assistance.

“Aren’t we entitled to live as happily and serenely as the rest of the world does?” the letter read. “Don’t we have the right to live in secure homes and enjoy the right to education and entertainment? Or we are doomed to endure unending misery?”

The children appealed for an urgent response by the UN-run bodies and concerned human rights institutions, saying serious efforts should be made to save hundreds of children who have been shivering of cold and suffering severe trauma before it is too late.
