Palestinian refugees from Syria (PRS) are arguably the most vulnerable sub-population affected by the Syrian crisis. Having been uprooted from their homes again, those now in Lebanon face countless challenges. Their Palestinian identity has become an influential factor in determining access to proper safety, shelter and work in Lebanon.

Newly arrived Palestinians – much like their compatriots already resident in Lebanon – are labelled as “guests.” They’re stateless. They have no rights. No protection. No hope.

Many seek protection in one of the Palestinian camps, like Shatila, which are testament to what can happen to neglected refugees and the country that tries to ignore them.
