New Jenin Homes Better Designed

(Ha'aretz) Gideon Levy - The homes are being rebuilt by UNRWA with a $29 million grant from the United Arab Emirates. Construction of 100 housing units has been completed, and 70 families have returned to their homes, which are better designed than the previous buildings. In addition, UNRWA moved 100 families to a new area on the outskirts of the camp where new houses were built for them. About 100 families in the camp managed to get contributions from Iraq's Saddam Hussein. Each family that lost its home received $25,000, which they used to refurbish the interior and add furniture and equipment of a higher standard than previously seen.
