Rebuilding Palestinian Livelihoods in Yarmouk Camp
Jafra Foundation for Relief and Youth Development has launched a GlobalGiving project "Rebuilding Palestinian Livelihoods in Yarmouk" in July 2018. Donations have helped to pave the way for returnees by conducting rubble and debris removal, as well as solid waste management activity.
Outcome: Around 35 workers and volunteers worked tirelessly to clean the camp and clear its roads. With rental of trucks and bulldozers, an average of 12 tons of rubble was removed daily. Several main roads and sideways were cleared, after which workers and volunteers conducting thorough cleaning. The collected rubble and waste were transferred to dumpsites located on the outskirts of the camp, remotely from any residential buildings and facilities.
This project came to a close. We continue to thank our donors for their generous contributions and support, and we reassure that their donations made a significant impact to the lives of those affected on the ground. The project came to an end given the insufficient funds to make it sustainable, however, we resume supporting the families within Yarmouk in various ways through our international partners. We look forward to introducing to the GlobalGiving community new projects that positively impact the lives of thousands of Palestinian refugees.
