London, 6 August 2018
The London-based Palestinian Return Centre (PRC) released a new report titled “UNRWA’s Social Assistance & Poverty Reduction Approaches The Case of Gazan Refugees In Jordan”.
The study spotlights the Achilles’ heels in the mechanisms pursued by UNRWA to rein in poverty among Gazan refugees who fled to Jordan, the majority of whom suffer from abject poverty.
The report provides an overview of the refugees’ living conditions, before it proceeds with an assessment of UNRWA’s past and present priorities. The focus is laid on the agency’s medium-term strategies and goals.
The study also covers UNRWA’s Social Safety Net Program, which aims to alleviate poverty among Palestine refugee families in UNRWA's fields of operation. The views and responses of a number of concerned Gaza refugees are put on display all the way through.
The report is wrapped up with a fact-based assessment of UNRWA initiatives and mechanisms to curb the propagation of poverty. A set of recommendations are finally put forth in an attempt to prop up UNRWA’s anti-poverty endeavors.
