UNRWA Denies Intending to Transfer Palestine Refugees from Syria & Lebanon to Other Countries

UNRWA in Lebanon denied emerging reports about its intent to transfer Palestinian refugees seeking shelter in Lebanon to other destinations.

UNRWA said such reports are counterfeit, pledging to keep up its core essential services for Palestine refugees in its five fields of operations, as mandated by the UN.

UNRWA also said developments about the agency’s decisions and activities are exclusively published on its official sources.

UNRWA is a United Nations agency established by the General Assembly in 1949 and mandated to provide assistance and protection to some 5.4 million Palestine refugees registered with UNRWA across its five fields of operation. Its services encompass education, health care, relief and social services, camp infrastructure and improvement, protection and microfinance.

UNRWA is confronted with an increased demand for services resulting from a growth in the number of registered Palestine refugees, the extent of their vulnerability and their deepening poverty. UNRWA is funded almost entirely by voluntary contributions and financial support has been outpaced by the growth in needs. As a result, the UNRWA program budget, which supports the delivery of core essential services, operates with a large shortfall.
