Lattakia Governor and UNRWA official follow up on projects to improve refugees’ living conditions

Lattakia, SANA – Lattakia Governor Ibrahim Khodr al-Salem discussed on Tuesday with the Director of United Nations Relief and Works Agency for Palestine Refugees in the Near East (UNRWA) in Syria, Michael Kingsley-Nyinah, the situation of Palestinian refugees in Lattakia province and means to improve their living conditions.

The governate, al-Salem affirmed, works to secure all the needs of both the Syrian displaced people and Palestinian refugees who were forced to leave their houses in the other provinces fleeing the acts of terrorist organizations.

He pointed out to ongoing work to open two UNRWA-proposed and sponsored public parks in al-Ramal al-Janoubi Camp by February 15.

For his part, Nyinah said establishing the two parks is part of a set of projects the UNRWA works to construct in Syria, which, along with the Agency’s health and educational services, are meant to benefit no less than almost 7000 Palestinian refugees in Lattakia alone.

He referred to the opening of a family center in Lattakia to provide consulting services to Palestinian refugees.

During the past two days, Nyinah met the governors of Hama and Homs and discussed with them issues related to the situation of Palestinian refugees in the two provinces.
