The Queue For Food At A Syrian Refugee Camp

Taken by the United Nations Relief And Works Agency on February 7th, several thousand Syrian refugees crowd the battered streets of Damascus to wait for food to be distributed by the United Nations. As the UNRWA describes:

It is a scene of unimaginable desolation – a crowd of men, women and children stretching as far as the eye can see into the war-devastasted landscape of Yarmouk refugee camp in Syria. This was the queue for aid at a UNRWA distribution point in the capital, Damascus, on 31 January. The UN relief agency has distributed more than 7,000 food parcels in the Palestinian camp, home to about 160,000 people, since 18 January. The UN has reported infant malnutrition in the community, which has been reduced to eating animal feed. As of this week, all aid distributions have been suspended because of security concerns.
