Beirut – Particularly vulnerable Palestine refugees from Syria in Lebanon will receive assistance to cope with the coming winter through a programme launched by the International Committee of the Red Cross (ICRC) and the United Nations Relief and Works Agency for Palestine Refugees in the Near East (UNRWA). This collaboration follows the signing of a partnership agreement in November 2015.
Palestinian refugees arriving in Lebanon from Syria are facing harsh winter conditions in the northern Bekaa Valley, where whole families have little or no means of survival. Today, the International Committee of the Red Cross (ICRC) and the United Nations Relief and Works Agency for Palestine Refugees in the Near East (UNRWA) in Lebanon signed an agreement that will ensure that ICRC winter assistance reaches the Palestine refugees living in the coldest areas of Lebanon. This is the first agreement of its kind between the two organizations.
