IHH has distributed food packets to families living in Lebanon’s Baddawi and Nahrulbad refugee camps as part of its continuing aid projects to more than 500.000 Palestinian refugees who are totally dependent on international aid for survival.
The condition of Palestinians in Lebanon
The Palestinian people that were forced to abandon their homelands following the Israeli occupation are struggling to survive under extremely difficult conditions in the camps of Lebanon.
They are unemployed and cannot benefit from the healthcare and education services in the country. These refugees are unable to purchase property or travel around the country freely. On average 50 people die every year due to electrocution. Every heavy rainfall is dangerous for them since the electricity and water supply networks in the camps are integrated. These Palestinians that are legally classified as “stateless” have been struggling to survive for 72 years in various regions of Lebanon in camps and multistory slum buildings which are deprived of sunlight.
IHH will be continuing aid operations for the Palestinian refugees in the country.
