The Palestinian Refugees from Syria started a Sit IN

Dear friends,

I would like to inform you that the Palestinian Refugees from Syria are now, for the 5th day making a Sit In in front of the Main Office of UNRWA in Beirut. This is after they became fully convinced that they are forgotten and will not be receiving real support. Although they appreciate the initiatives from this association or another, and the individual solidarity, but all what have received is still less than the minimum of what the refugees need concerning Housing, Health Care (Hospitalization) Education, nutrition, (children milk, Hygiene , cloths), etc…

The refugees are suffering out of the high living costs in Lebanon, while they have lost everything in Syria, in addition to the fact that they are threatened to be thrown on the street.

Of course, we do understand and support their loud voice out of their pain and we do believe they should benefit from what the Child Rights, Human Rights, and Refugee Rights treaties call for in order for them to survive, with dignity and respect. We do believe this situation will carry a huge threat to the children’s safety and protection from delinquency, child labor, drop out of schools, moral and physical abuse and exploitation.

CYC is standing beside this popular strike, and supporting their action, as well as calling for all who can give a hand to them to not hesitate. Therefore, whatever you can provide can be of big help to them. We consider their strike supportive to all the NGO’s demanding for emergency and relief work for the refugees.

The Refugees stopped believing the excuses of the donors. such like lack of acknowledge, or they work on need assessment, or waiting the answers for their appeals. The refugees believe that the government’s concern is directed to support mainly the military groups and gang who are involved in the war in Syria, and not planning to support civilians whom are left without protection and support.

We do ask our friends NGO’s, association and individuals, Palestinian, Lebanese, Arab and international to help those families who are sitting on the street under the sun in the day and cold at night without any possibilities. what ever is needed, financial, material or moral support, blankets, food, visit support, milk and diapers, clothes, since everything can be useful to them in the situation they are in right now. It a duty to all of us to play a human supportive role for those to get minimum normal life in a shelter and protect their children…
Unfortunately UNRWA has closed The main gate in their faces, isolated them out of the wall to the street, deprived the mothers and children even from using a toilet or water to wash…
