Children in Yarmouk Camp for Palestine Refugees Pluck Up Courage & Join Schools

Despite the traumatic fallouts brought about by Syria’s relentless warfare, Palestinian children sheltered in Yarmouk refugee camp have returned to their schools as of September 3, in a move backed up by the General Authority for Palestinian Arab Refugees.

With dozens of families denied access to their homes in the camp and hundreds of school children walking for dozens of kilometers to get into their schools, civilians have voiced deep concern over their children’s academic performance with the advent of the new school year.

Schoolchildren gather at around 11 a.m. in Salah AlDeen Street, Safad Street, and the crossroads of Haifa and Loubiya streets, awaiting public means of transport to give them a lift to their schools.

Sometime earlier, Yarmouk’s education chief, Walid AlKurdi, said a meeting between the director of the General Authority for Palestinian Arab Refugees, Ali Mustafa, and UNRWA’s Commissioner-General, Pierre Krahenbuhl, along with UNRWA’s director of operations in Syria, Michael Amanaia, culminated in serious promises to rehabilitate educational premises in Yarmouk Camp.

Available data by UNRWA indicates that 32 UNRWA facilities have been reduced to rubble in Yarmouk Camp, including 16 schools.

Several UNRWA facilities were destroyed in the Syrian warfare and others have gone out of operation, including two clinics, a vocational training center, a youth development center, and 28 schools, out of 112 UNRWA schools in Syria.

The residents continue to call on concerned authorities to open up local schools, recruit qualified teaching staff, and secure transportation means back to and from the camp.
