palestine-exhibitionThe living conditions of Palestinian refugees are being showcased by the United Nations Relief and Works Agency for Palestine Refugees in the Near East (UNRWA) in an exhibition at the American University of Sharjah (AUS).

The exhibition, which holds a mirror to the difficult conditions and the development of refugee camps through photos, documents and personal accounts by refugees from six camps in Jordan, Palestine, Lebanon and Syria, will run until 14 November.

“The exhibition represents a sample of work that UNRWA has done in the development of the 58 camps that are home to 1.5 million refugees out of the five million refugees living in UNRWA’s field of operation,” Issam Miqdadi, Director of Infrastructure and Camp Improvement, at UNRWA said.
