Fighting poverty is at the core of the Millennium Development Goals and generous funding from the European Union has allowed UNRWA to maintain urgently-needed services for the 540,000 Palestine refugees registered in Syria, including some 60,000 who have fled to neighbouring countries.

 

Continuous EU support has proved essential in maintaining direct cash assistance to the most vulnerable refugees in Syria, as well as education, healthcare, relief and social services. 

 

Over 50 per cent of Palestine refugees in Syria have been internally displaced by the ongoing conflict, many on more than one occasion, losing their homes and livelihoods as a result.
