UNRWA’s Acting Commissioner-General Shows Up in Syria’s AlSabina Camp for Palestinian Refugees

Acting Commissioner-General of the United Nations Relief and Works Agency for Palestine Refugees in the Near East (UNRWA), Christian Saunders, paid a visit to Sabina camp in Rif Damshq, previously an embattled area to the south of Damascus to which Palestine refugees have returned.

Saunders toured UNRWA installations and met with representatives of the UNRWA school parliament.

“Dream big, keep your dreams, and work hard to realize your dreams,” Saunders said while addressing the students.

Saunders visited Syria between 3 and 6 December, during which time he met with Palestine refuges and UNRWA staff and held meetings with a number of Syrian government officials.

Sometime earlier, he also travelled to Yarmouk, once a bustling area home to some 160,000 Palestine refugees and the enduring symbol of the Palestine refugee diaspora.  The camp has been the scene of fierce clashes and now lies in ruins.   Seventy-five per cent of the Agency’s 23 premises, including 16 schools, need to be completely rebuilt and all three of the Agency’s health centers in Yarmouk are completely destroyed.
