Abstract: Abstract: The estimated age of old Jerusalem is 5,000 B.C. The city holds special significance for all three monotheistic religions: Judaism, Christianity, and Islam. Palestinian residents of Jerusalem lack access to adequate water and sanitation infrastructure and services primarily due to the Jerusalem Municipality's strict housing and urban planning regime which places strict criteria for entitlement of these services. The study uses a qualitative approach in order to provide a deeper understanding of living and housing conditions in the refugee of Shuafat. The vulnerable and miserable situation in the camps has badly affected the innocent refugees. In case there is an international support for upgrading through proper donation, the main living and housing condition in the Shuafat refugees’ camp can be improved. This paper explores the current living and housing conditions in the Shuafat refugee’s camp. This paper will give clear recommendations and various scenarios for upgrading housing and living conditions in the refugee camps of the West Bank and Jerusalem.
