“A seven-year-old child in Gaza has already witnessed three wars in their lifetime. This is unacceptable.”
Jan Egeland, NRC’s Secretary General
Large-scale displacement took place during the wars of 1948 and 1967, when Israel occupied the West Bank, including East Jerusalem and the Gaza Strip. Many of those displaced have never been able to return. There are currently over 5 million Palestinian refugees spread across Palestine, as well as in Jordan, Lebanon and Syria.
Through our programme in Palestine, we protect and assist those affected by or threatened with displacement. NRC Palestine has offices in Jerusalem, Ramallah, Hebron and Gaza, where we provide legal counselling to promote access to human rights, shelter, water and sanitation, and quality education. Nationally and globally, we advocate for the rights of displaced Palestinians. We work to reach Palestinians who are displaced or who face imminent threats of displacement. Together with local authorities and community-based organizations, we establish mechanisms monitoring the needs of displaced Palestinians, and promoting community-owned solutions.
NRC is currently implementing Urban Displacement outside Camps (UDOC) project with focus on emergency preparedness planning and communication with communities. NRC UDOC is currently working under the umbrella of IDPs working group to support humanitarian actors and communities all over Gaza strip. The project aims to effectively communicate and provide relevant information to the affected population (mainly IDPs), and to facilitate effective community forums to ensure timely and coordinated service delivery that includes community participation. NRC believes this will help pave the way towards more resilient communities with capacities to respond to future shocks. NRC’s UDOC has established strong experience responding to IDPs’ needs and protection concerns through filling field coordination and communication gaps in the Gaza Strip context. UDOC is well positioned and mandated to support the humanitarian interventions in urban displacement settings to prioritize the most vulnerable IDPs to access transitional and durable solutions”
