UNRWA, the United Nations Relief and Works Agency for Palestine Refugees in the Near East, has issued a story about the dire situation of Palestine refugees in Syria. The UNRWA employee in Syria I met last Thursday and her colleagues are among the sources of the story.
The story begins:
Palestine refugees in Syria are being killed, injured and displaced in greater numbers than ever before, as the armed conflict continues to overwhelm refugee camps across the country. The United Nations Relief and Works Agency for Palestine Refugees (UNRWA) now estimates that approximately 235,000 Palestine refugees have been displaced inside Syria and is particularly concerned about news that was confirmed today on the displacement of some 6,000 Palestinians from Ein El Tal on 26 April, a Palestine refugee camp some 12 kilometres from Aleppo in northern Syria.
The story concludes:
UNRWA urgently appeals to all sides to halt the human suffering caused by the conflict in Syria, and to resolve their differences through dialogue and political negotiations.
I have prayed for my friend and for the Palestine refugees in Syria. I continue to do so. I have shared their story. I continue to do so. Now it is time to give. UNRWA has issued a special appeal for Palestine refugees in Syria. I have made a contribution.
See you along the Trail.
