Main Findings
Financial vulnerability was the most prevalent vulnerability. 36% of the assessment respondents were engaged in a paid labor at an average of three or more members per household mainly as handworkers within vegetable farms. Manual labourers among refugees work in exchange for a very low payment; which is about 80-100 piaster per hour. The vast majority of children weren't attending any schools. This was explained by the following reasons: inability to afford auxiliary costs for the school, some of the targeted rural areas don’t have schools close by, long distance to be travelled to reach nearest school. Almost all respondents were living in unhealthy living conditions. All kitchens visited in houses and corners used as kitchens in the tents lacked refrigeration tools. Refugees had limited access to clean water sources. The water is kept in open barrels or gallons. The tents were heavily populated with insects, including cockroaches, mites, fleas, spiders, flies and scabies. Forced early marriage for girls a problem. Female headed households faced serious problems, females didn't have any assistance, and they had to sell all their possessions and their savings. Most of the health conditions reported were chronic, including Crohns.
