Germany Contributes €21Million for Work to Complete Construction of Nahr el-Bared Refugee Camp

Beirut, MINA — Germany contributed €21 million for completing the final phase in the reconstruction of Nahr el-Bared Palestinian refugee camp in Lebanon, WAFA reported, citing the Lebanese-Palestinian Dialogue Committee on Wednesday.

It said it was informed by the Lebanese Council of Ministers that the German government has agreed to contribute €21 million toward completing the reconstruction of Nahr el-Bared refugee camp after Lebanese Prime Minister Saad Hariri has requested this during the Brussels meeting on Syria held last May.

Details of how to disperse this money will be discussed early next year in a meeting at the German embassy in Beirut with the Dialogue Committee in its capacity as the governmental committee responsible for Palestinian refugee affairs in Lebanon.

Head of the committee said an additional €80 million will be needed to complete the final phase in this project, urging the Arab countries that have pledged funds toward this project to pay their dues to push forward the reconstruction. (T/RS5/RS1)
