Refugee camps across Jordan and Lebanon are overcrowded, cramped and unsafe.
The Palestinian refugee crisis is the oldest and most drawn out in the world. There are now more than 5 million Palestinian refugees registered with UNRWA across the Middle East. Many who experienced the Nakba in 1948 have since witnessed up to four successive generations endure further displacement, poverty and refugeehood.
Refugee camps across Jordan and Lebanon are overcrowded, cramped and unsafe. Poor infrastructure, contaminated water and dangerous electrical networks leave families at constant risk as they contend with soaring levels of poverty and deprivation.
UK Care for Children’s Refugee Relief Programme focuses on shelter support, clean water access, food aid, financial aid and emergency medical support. We provide a vital lifeline to some of the most vulnerable families in need and ensure that thousands of children and their families are looked after.
