Over a year has passed since clashes broke out at Sidon's Ain al-Hilweh, rocking the Palestinian camp from April to August 2017 .A $3 million grant from Japan has been distributed to owners of houses that were damaged either entirely or in part, to be used to finance rehabilitation works under the supervision of the United Nations Relief and Works Agency (UNRWA) for Palestinian refugees, and Naba'a, a local NGO working for Palestinian rights.The reconstruction project began nearly two months ago and is set to renovate over 900 houses in the camp in an effort to help affected families move back into their homes.
