* 시간: 02 min 12 secs

Six kilometers east of Damascus … more than 20,000 Palestinian refugees live in the Jaramana camp. The vast For more details, email fulfillment@thenewsmarket.com © Copyright 2008, The NewsMarket, Inc or call +212.497.9022 (US); +44.20.7580.8330 (Europe) www.thenewsmarket.com
majority of them live in poverty … most are unemployed. Those that do work find day labor in construction and industry. Interfamily marriages are common here … resulting in a high incidence of genetic disorder. 85 per cent of the total registered refugees in Syria obtain free medical support through two dozen health centres run by the United Nations Relief and Works Agency (UNRWA).


The Jaramana clinic provides primary health care, mother and child health, family planning, disease prevention and control, and dental services. During the first year of an infant’s life, mothers bring their babies once a month to receive their immunization and to monitor their growth and development. But poverty still takes its toll on the well-being of children.

One in forty children under five among the Palestinian refugees is severely underweight.
SOUNDBITE (Arabic): Dr. Hassan Arab, Head of Jarmana Clinic. “We suffer from high prevalence of iron deficiency anemia among children and pregnant women. Families are not aware that it is through proper feeding and not through medicine that we can solve this problem”.
Medical workers here hold workshops on sickle cell anemia and other genetic disorders caused by a high incident of interfamily marriages. Early identification of hereditary disease and genetic counselling can help reduce the problem.

UNICEF supports sickle cell anemia screening in the Palestinian camps. And has trained more than 140 health workers.
Their help is crucial for mothers struggling to care for their children in an impoverished and overcrowded landscape.
