General

Op het hoogtepunt van het recent Israëlisch/Palestijns conflict in Gaza (juli-augustus 2014) werd een kwart van de totale bevolking (1,8 miljoen inwoners) verplaatst, en zochten ongeveer 300.000 mensen bescherming en onderdak in UNRWA-scholen. Naast die massale verplaatsingen en bijhorende menselijk leed, werd er miljoenenschade aangericht aan huizen, scholen, gezondheidscentra en andere publieke infrastructuur. UNRWA schat de gelden schade als volgt in: - 123.837 woningen hebben kleine schade (“minor damage”) opgelopen; - 3.700 woningen hebben grote schade (“major damage”) opgelopen; - 5.417 woningen hebben zeer ernstige schade (“severe damage”) opgelopen; - 9.117 woningen werden totaal vernietigd (“destroyed”). De financieringsnood van UNRWA voor de herstelwerkzaamheden (“emergency shelter assistance”) bedragen midden juni 2016 ongeveer 143 miljoen USD. De Belgische financiering zal zich richten op herstel van “severely damaged housing units”. De gemiddelde kostprijs wordt geraamd op 22.000 USD per wooneenheid. Make cities inclusive, safe, resilient and sustainable.(By 2030, ensure access for all to adequate, safe and affordable housing and basic services and upgrade slums)

Results

This intervention is congruent with the UNRWA 2016 Emergency Appeal for the oPt, with the specific objective to ensure crisis-affected refugees enjoy their basic rights to services, including education; health; water, sanitation and hygiene (WASH); and shelter repair. Providing cash assistance and oversight for the repair of severely damaged homes will ensure that refugee families affected by military operations or natural disaster are able to return their homes.

Other

Refugee families displaced or affected by military activity or natural disaster have their right to adequate shelter upheld. Approximately 92 Palestine refugee families whose shelters have sustained severe damage will benefit from shelter assistance
