3600 more health packages distributed to displaced people of Yarmouk Camp

Damascus, SANA – 3600 more health packages were distributed to the displaced locals of Yarmouk Camp neighborhood on Wednesday after a similar amount was delivered to them a day before.

Residents of the terrorist-besieged neighborhood, located in southern Damascus, were forced to flee their homes after terrorists from the Islamic State in Iraq and Syria (ISIS) entered the area with the help of Jabhat al-Nusra terrorist organization in April 2015.

Most of those who left the neighborhood moved to the nearby towns of Yalda, Babila and Beit Sahm where the aid delivery took place.

The aid distribution was carried out by the General Authority for Palestine Arab Refugees (GAPAR) and the United Nations Relief and Worker Agency for Palestinian Refugees (UNRWA), under the auspices of the Syrian government and the Higher Relief Committee.

GAPAR Director General Ali Mustafa, who announced the new aid delivery in a statement to SANA on Thursday, said around 123782 food packages and 33380 health packages have been distributed to beneficiaries since January 2014.
