Despite various constraints and operational challenges, most often resulting from violent clashes and protests in Palestine refugee camps, UNRWA continued to deliver quality, equitable and inclusive education services to all Palestine Refugees from Syria (PRS) children (5,251) enrolled in 65 UNRWA schools. All pupils received educational and recreational materials. Furthermore, psychosocial services aimed at relieving stress and anxiety, empowering students, and reducing dropout rates benefited a total of 1,412 PRS students. The Agency also supported the employability of PRS by providing vocational training to 25 PRS during the first half of 2017.
UNRWA continued to deliver quality primary health-care services to PRS and provided US$ 27 per month to all PRS to meet food assistance needs and multipurpose grants of US$ 100 per family per month.
