80-Year-old Palestinian Woman Homeless in Lebanon

Palestinian refugee Umm Khaled, aged 86, has gone homeless in the Lebanese territories, to which she fled from war-torn Syria.

Umm Khaled, who used to take shelter in Syria’s Yarmouk refugee camp, has been left on her own in an eight-meter room in AlSindibad camp, in Lebanon’s AlBekaa region. During winter, heavy rain often creeps into her room, leaving her shivering of cold.

Umm Khaled suffers from several illnesses and can buy neither food nor medicines.

Speaking on condition of anonymity, an activist said: “Umm Khaled’s story is just heart-breaking. Listening to her sad voice as she narrates how she’s been unable to purchase medicines and bread is tear-jerking”.

Nearly 28,000 Palestinian refugees from Syria have sought shelter in Lebanon, where they have been subjected to a precarious legal status and dire socio-economic conditions owing to their lack of access to vital services, particularly health care.

After eight years of conflict, Palestinians from Syria continue to be seriously affected by the warfare. Thousands have been scattered across the globe, torn away from the nourishment of home and warmth of family.
