Palestinian Families Displaced from Yarmouk Camp Appeal for Urgent Relief Assistance in Response to Coronavirus Outbreak

Palestinian families displaced from Yarmouk refugee camp to Jdeidat Artouz, in Rif Dimashq, said they are unable to cope with the coronavirus outbreak as they have not received medical assistance by the UN Relief and Works Agency for Palestine Refugees (UNRWA).

The residents said no precautionary measures have been taken in the area, where dozens of displaced families live below the poverty line.

Civilians added that neither disinfectants nor detergents have been distributed in the area.

Over recent weeks, Palestinian refugees sheltered across the Syrian territories have kept urging UNRWA to assist them in their fight against the novel coronavirus COVID-19.

Activists have lashed out at UNRWA and the General Authority for Palestinian Arab Refugees (GAPAR) over their unresponsiveness regarding the cries for help launched by the Palestinian refugee community in Syria due to coronavirus outbreak.

The refugees said the sterilization campaigns and precautionary measures carried out by UNRWA and GAPAR do not protect civilians against COVID-19 contaminations.

Recently, AGPS has warned of a projected outbreak of COVID-19 in Palestinian refugee camps in Syria. Though campaigns to help spread awareness among the camps’ residents have recently seen the day, limited access to running water, pharmacies and medical facilities mean displacement camps are more susceptible to the spread of the highly infectious virus.
