MOVING FORWARD ON THE RECONSTRUCTION OF NAHR EL-BARED
Nahr el-Bared camp was totally destroyed in 2007 leading to the displacement of over 27,000 Palestine refugees. Since then, with the support of the Lebanese Government and the international donor community, UNRWA has been engaged in its largest ever individual reconstruction project, with an estimated cost of US$ 345 million dollars. The reconstruction project is 54 per cent complete in spite of many challenges. Of the approximately 5,000 families who are registered to return, 2,641 families have received the keys to their newly reconstructed houses as of May 2017.
