Despite relentless efforts to attain new funding from other countries and donors, UNRWA still needs $217 million to sustain its work for 2018. As a result, UNRWA's 711 schools may not open this September.
What's at risk is the education, stability, and future of 526,000 refugee children who are already facing tremendous adversity and challenges.
This Ramadan, create a lifeline for Palestine refugees by providing UNRWA food assistance to families in the Gaza Strip. Nearly one million Palestine refugees in Gaza depend on UNRWA for food assistance, given four times a year to families living under the poverty line. Food assistance is a lifeline; please help UNRWA provide it.
With the United States government’s decision in January 2018 to cut funding to UNRWA by $300 million, the Agency faces an unprecedented funding crisis and millions of Palestine refugees could lose access to UNRWA services.
It's going to take all of us standing together to fund UNRWA's work so the Agency can continue serving Palestine refugees.
