It has been two months since UNRWA last completed a successful aid distribution. Since December 6, it has delivered just 36 food parcels. To meet minimum food needs of this extremely vulnerable population, it needs to deliver 400 food parcels a day.
Forecasts say cold weather is set to continue over the next few days, with heavy snowfall and gale force winds. Flooding is already a problem in some lower-lying areas, and will become more serious once the snow melts.
