Syria Palestine refugees humanitarian snapshot, February 2016

Wednesday, March 16, 2016

Access to distribute humanitarian assistance for residents of Yarmouk, Yalda, Babila and Beit Saham was made possible for the 1rst time since June from a distribution point in Yalda. From 13 to 29 February, UNRWA distributed 5,700 food parcels; 19,160 blankets; and 2,400 hygiene kits containing shampoo, a hair brush, sanitary items, soap, a toothbrush, toothpaste and laundry detergent to residents of Yalda, Babila, Beit Saham and Yarmouk. Access to certain other areas, however, remained limited and insucient to cover the increasing humanitarian needs of the Palestine refugee population during February. UNRWA continues to coordinate with other humanitarian partners and hopes this renewed access, facilitated by the Syrian authorities, will lead to sustained operations in the area.
