Sondos is one of thousands of Palestinians in Lebanon incensed at the U.N. Relief Works Agency for modifying a health care program that will now require patients to pay for a portion of their primary care.Instead, camp residents and Palestinian factions in Lebanon fear that primary health care cuts are part of a greater conspiracy to eliminate UNRWA all together, an agency that many Palestinians consider vital in preserving their right to return to their homeland. UNRWA is the only remaining U.N. body to directly address the needs of Palestinians since the U.N. Conciliation Commission for Palestine was discontinued in 1952 .In the eyes of many Palestinians in Lebanon, UNRWA has evolved to embody this task even though it's not a part of its operational mandate.In Lebanon, Palestinians are excluded from the political and social sphere.In Mohammad's case, however, he may very well qualify for tertiary care, a provision that is supposed to have much wider coverage with the latest changes to the healthcare program.
