Italy approves additional funding for UNRWA.

Jerusalem, 7 September 2018. Italy approves additional funding for UNRWA.

In accordance with the well-established Italian support to UNRWA, the United Nations Relief and Works Agency for Palestine Refugees in the Near East, and given the serious financial difficulties that UNRWA is facing, Italy has approved an additional funding of EUR 3.5 million for programmes to be carried out in Lebanon and in the Gaza Strip.

The contribution comes on top of the financial effort already set up by Italy for the benefit of the Agency. This effort, considered as a whole (USD 14 million in 2017), allows our Country to be the 14th most important donor of the agency.

UNRWA keeps playing an essential part by providing basic services to more than 5 million Palestinian refugees. Its activities contribute in a concrete manner to the stability of the region.
