Swedish Princess Victoria Tours Palestinian Refugee Camp, Meets UNRWA

W460

Sweden's Crown Princess Victoria, accompanied by the Swedish Minister of the Elderly and Social Affairs, and the Swedish Ambassador to Lebanon, Jurgen Lindstrom, toured the neighborhoods of Bourj al-Barajneh Palestinian refugee camp where she was briefed on the “dire situation of the residents,” the National News Agency reported Thursday.

At the camp, Princess Victoria was received by Director-General of the UNRWA, Claudio Cordone. The visit was preceded by a tour for a Swedish press delegation around the camp to take photographs of the living conditions in which the refugees live.

The Princess and the accompanying delegation then went to UNRWA's Yarmouk Primary School in the camp, where she received praise for her sympathy for the UNRWA cause.

The Princess had arrived in Beirut on Wednesday. She met with President Michel Aoun and PM-designate Saad Hariri.

There are tens of thousands of Arab Refugees in Sweden, go to Malmo and you'll hear more Arabic spoken than Swedish.

“dire situation of the residents,”
They and the Lebanese Authorities have had over 70 years to improve their situation, so there is no one else to blame. Where did all that money they received since 1948 from/through UNWRA go to?
