Supporting Palestine Refugee Children with a Disability During COVID-19
Persons with disabilities, including children, experience barriers which make it difficult to participate in their societies daily. They are often excluded from basic services such as education, health, and employment and, when crises happen, they are most likely to be left behind. To continue to provide education to Palestine refugee children, including those with disabilities, learners in UNRWA schools received lessons remotely, while special education teachers provided support to parents and students with disabilities, as much as possible to continue self-learning at home.
Narine (7), Zaki (6), and Ayman (18) are among the over 9,000 students with disabilities attending UNRWA and partners’ schools in Lebanon, Syria, Jordan, Gaza and the West Bank (including East Jerusalem) who received support through the self-learning programme of the UNRWA COVID-19 Education in Emergencies Response, making sure that no one is left behind. Due to the Agency’s unprecedented financial crisis, critical services like those extended to these children are now in jeopardy, putting #PalestineRefugeesAtRisk.
