HUMANITARIAN APPEAL

“Palestine refugees remain one of the communities worst affected by the conflict in Syria. They experience profound anxieties related to persistent hostilities, loss of life, injury, continued displacement, and destruction of their homes and livelihoods. In 2018, they were also confronted with a series of dramatic events, including the consequences of the final stages of the destruction of Yarmouk and the impacts of the US funding cut to UNRWA. Of the 560,000 refugees registered with UNRWA in Syria, over 120,000 have fled to Lebanon, Jordan and beyond. Inside Syria, 254,000 Palestine refugees have been displaced at least once since the beginning of the conflict, while 13,500 are trapped in hard to reach areas. Yarmouk, Ein el Tal and Dera’a camps – previously home to around a third of the Palestine refugee population in Syria – have been almost completely destroyed.”
