Damascus, SANA-Commissioner-General of the United Nations’ Relief and Works’ Agency for Palestine Refugees (UNRWA), Philippe Lazzarini, inspected on Wednesday the educational, health and relief situation of the Palestinian refugees in Yarmouk and Sbinah camps in Damascus and its countryside.
Lazzarini’s tour included a number of refugee schools in al-Sabina camp as a documentary film about the camp’s situation during the war and after its liberation from terrorism was screened.
He was also briefed about the health services provided at al- Sabina Medical Clinic and the Social Development Center to support citizens with disabilities.
In Yarmouk camp, Lazzarini was briefed on the Agency’s facilities that were damaged in the terrorist attacks, including the Yarmouk Health Center, one of the Agency’s three health centers in the camp, a number of schools, the medical point and the health services it provides in the camp.
In a statement to the journalists, Lazarini affirmed that the agency provided many services and material and food assistance and rehabilitated many of its facilities to the residents of Al Sabina camp.
He pointed out that there is a large percentage of Palestinian refugees who have returned to their homes in the camp, and the Agency provides all services to them, and there are other families who wish to return, and this requires more aid, services and support from UNRWA.
