Sixty-one families and 35 business owners received keys Monday to their newly reconstructed properties in the Nahr al-Bared Palestinian refugee camp, marking the latest reconstruction development after the camp's destruction during a 2007 armed crisis.One of the returnees, Issam Isa al-Sayed, expressed gratitude for being able to return to his home in the camp.The project currently has enough funding to ensure that 3,338 families can return to the camp, but around 1,600 will remain displaced if no further funds are raised.For now, though, families like Sayed's will still benefit from the agency's programs and services, as more displaced families are expected to return to the Nahr al-Bared camp.
