UNRWA conducted humanitarian operations in Yalda today, providing vital healthcare to civilians displaced from Yarmouk and host communities.
As armed violence continues to threaten the lives and safety of Palestine refugees throughout Syria, UNRWA appeals for donors to increase their support to the UNRWA Syria Crisis Appeal, which has received only 31% of the funds needed for 2015.
More than 95% of Palestine refugees now rely on UNRWA to meet their daily needs of food, water and healthcare.
Priority interventions include cash assistance, which enables UNRWA to serve 460,000 Palestine refugees in need. Additional funding is also required for critical non-food items including blankets, mattresses and hygiene kits for displaced Palestine refugee families throughout Syria.
