2,400 more food and health packages distributed to displaced families from Yarmouk Camp

Damascus, SANA – With support from the Syrian government and supervision from the Higher Relief Committee, the General Authority for Palestinian Arab Refugees (GAPAR) and the United Nations Relief and Works Agency for Palestine Refugees in the Near East (UNRWA) distributed more humanitarian aid to the displaced people of Yarmouk Camp who fled their neighborhood due to terrorism.

In a statement to SANA, GAPAR Director General Ali Mustafa said that 1,200 food packages and 1,200 health packages were distributed on Monday among displaced families from Yarmouk Camp who are currently residing in the nearby towns of Yalda, Babila, and Beit Sahm in Damascus countryside.

Medicine and medical services, including dental services, were also provided to needy people, Mustafa noted.

He affirmed that aid delivery and distribution in the towns will continue, adding that since January 2014, around 139,382 food packages and 44,980 health packages have been distributed to beneficiaries.

Clothes, bread, milk, canned food, fruit, and vegetables are continuously being distributed to the needy people, Mustafa said.

In early April, 2015, Jabhat al-Nusra terrorist organization facilitated the infiltration of hundreds of ISIS terrorists into Yarmouk Camp to undermine efforts of the Syrian government to keep the Palestinian refugees from becoming involved in the current events in the country.

The terrorists committed horrible crimes against the residents, forcing many of them to flee the neighborhood.
