Arabs for Arabs

Arabs for Arabs

750 housing units were built for Arab families who lost their home during Israeli military operations in 2004 and 2005. The units were built as part of a $20 million re-housing Saudi-funded project managed by the United Nations Relief and Works Agency for Arab refugees (UNRWA).

The construction cost of $27 thousand per housing unit is not bad at all. If we assume that there about 100 thousand families in the Gaza Strip living in refugee camp conditions, it should cost $2.7 billion to house all of them in one of these lovely looking buildings. That’s less than what the Saudis earn in a week (a day?).

The waiting starts… now.
