2016 Syria emergency appeal

Palestine refugees have been among the worst affected by the bloodshed and destruction wrought by the conflict in Syria. The majority of the estimated 450,000 Palestine refugees remaining in Syria are displaced and 95 percent rely on UNRWA for assistance.

The Agency’s pre-existing structures, supply chains and workforce have enabled an effective response to the crisis, including to the tens of thousands of Palestine refugees who have fled to Lebanon and Jordan.

In 2016, UNRWA needs US$ 414 million to meet the minimum humanitarian needs of Palestine refugees affected by the conflict in the region.
