AMMAN — The United Nations Relief and Works Agency for Palestine Refugees in the Near East (UNRWA) appealed today for $1.6 billion for programmes and operations in 2023.    

“Across all the area of operations, UNRWA continues to play an indispensable role in the lives of millions of Palestine refugees. We work to maintain the delivery of basic services in an incredibly difficult financial and political context,” said UNRWA Commissioner-General Phillippe Lazzarini in a statement.

“Palestine refugees — one of the most underprivileged communities in the region — face unprecedented challenges and increasingly rely on UNRWA for basic services and in some cases the sheer survival.”
