Context

The conflict in Syria entered the 11th year since its outbreak in 2011. The socio-economic situation of Palestine refugees has worsened as a result of the protracted conflict and additional difficulties caused by the COVID-19 pandemic. This situation drove around 438,000 Palestine refugees currently resident in Syria into increasing vulnerability, leading to even higher poverty levels. According to the Agency's May 2021 Crisis Monitoring Survey Report, about 83 per cent of Palestine refugees live on US$1.9 or less per person per day. In this challenging context, UNRWA is responding to the protracted humanitarian consequences of the situation through an annual Emergency Appeal process. In 2021, UNRWA provided emergency cash and in-kind food assistance to about 418,000 Palestine refugees.
