More Funds Needed for Palestinian Refugee Camp

The United Nations Relief and Works Agency is seeking more funds to provide housing subsidies and food rations to Nahr al-Bared Palestinian refugee camp in Lebanon, said UNRWA spokeswoman Hoda al-Turk. “At the end of October we would be forced to stop paying the rental subsidies for 3,100 families and stop the distribution of food rations for 27,000 people,” said Turk. “They will be homeless again.” (“Funds for displaced from Nahr al-Bared almost all gone” - Daily Star, Oct. 9, 2008)
