Restoring Hope to Palestine Refugee Community in Syria

Syria

UNRWA Deputy Commissioner-General Margot Ellis has inaugurated a rehabilitated school for Palestine refugee children in Qabr Essit camp in Sayeda Zeinab on the outskirts of Damascus. The Alma-Yarmouk School has been closed since the conflict forced the majority of the camp’s 25,000 residents to seek refuge in safer areas. Although it was severely damaged by the intense armed exchanges, the school is now a symbol of UNRWA efforts to restore services to Palestine refugees in Qabr Essit.
