Palestinian Refugees in Lebanon Denounce Absence of Humanitarian Assistance

Displaced Palestinian families from Syria in AlMiya wa Miya camp, in Lebanon’s southern city of Sidon, continue to launch distress signals over the exacerbated humanitarian condition. High rates of unemployment and poverty along with the absence of humanitarian assistance have made life unbearable in the camp.

Speaking with AGPS, a Palestinian girl taking refuge in the camp said no relief items have been distributed in the isolated camp for months.

Displaced Palestinian families in Lebanon refugee camps have been struggling for survival due to the cold weather and freezing temperatures.

Over 470,000 refugees are registered with UNRWA in Lebanon. About 45 per cent of them live in the country’s 12 refugee camps. Conditions in the camps are dire and characterized by overcrowding, poor housing conditions, unemployment, poverty and lack of access to justice.

Palestinians in Lebanon do not enjoy several important rights; for example, they cannot work in many professions and cannot own property (real estate). Because they are not formally citizens of another state, Palestine refugees are unable to claim the same rights as other foreigners living and working in Lebanon.
