UN Palestinian Refugee Agency Pleads for Funds
Thursday, 23 May 2019 17:25 WIB | GLOBAL |Global

The U.N. agency that assists Palestinian refugees warned Wednesday that it would run out of money in a few weeks if donors did not step up quickly.

"As we speak, UNRWA has only enough money to run its operations until mid-June," Pierre Krähenbühl, commissioner-general of the U.N. Relief and Works Agency for Palestine Refugees, told the U.N. Security Council.

The council meets monthly to discuss the Israel-Palestinian conflict.

UNRWA provides more than 5 million Palestinian refugees in the Gaza Strip, West Bank, Jordan, Lebanon and Syria with essential services, including education and health care.

Krähenbühl said the agency needs $1.2 billion this year for all of its operations across the region.

"This is the exact amount we mobilized last year," he said. "If every donor managed to maintain its level of funding in 2019, we should be able to cover our budget."
