The 2014 hostilities caused significant destruction in Gaza with 141,650 Palestine refugee housing units damaged, including 12,950 that were severely damaged or totally destroyed. In addition, the hostilities further weakened electricity, water, and sanitation systems, already suffering through years of neglect due to blockade and internal divide. As of April 2019, through support provided by UNRWA, more than 4,457 refugee families had completed or were in the process of completing the reconstruction of totally destroyed homes, while over 85,349 families had completed or were in the process of completing repairs to their damaged homes. In 2018, the Agency continued to provide up to end of June transitional shelter cash assistance – rental subsidies – to support temporary housing solutions for families who remain displaced. This form of assistance was suspended due to lack of funds in the second half of 2018 and remains under suspension in 2019 pending receipt of dedicated donor funding.
