Polio vaccination starts in Syria's besieged Yarmuk camp

Polio vaccination has begun in Syria's besieged Yarmuk camp, the UN agency for Palestinian refugees UNRWA said Wednesday. At least 88 people have died of hunger and lack of medical care under the siege, according to one NGO, but UNRWA has now begun moving food parcels and medicine into Yarmuk. "We are pleased to announce that UNRWA has secured the formal authorisation for the transfer of 10,000 polio vaccines to Yarmuk," UNRWA spokesman Chris Gunness said. He said 5,194 food parcels had been distributed to the camp since UNRWA gained access.
