Arab League Calls for Increasing Support to Palestine Refugees

The Arab League Assistant Secretary General for Palestine and Occupied Arab Territories Saeed Abu Ali urged the international community to tune up support for the UN Relief and Works Agency for Palestine Refugees (UNRWA).

This came during the 104th session of the Conference of the Supervisors of Palestinian Affairs in the Host Arab States in Cairo.

Speaking via video-conference, Abu Ali stressed the importance of upholding UNRWA’s mission for Palestine refugees pending a just and final solution to their plight.

UNRWA is confronted with an increased demand for services resulting from a growth in the number of registered Palestine refugees, the extent of their vulnerability and their deepening poverty. UNRWA is funded almost entirely by voluntary contributions and financial support has been outpaced by the growth in needs. As a result, the UNRWA programme budget, which supports the delivery of core essential services, operates with a large shortfall.

UNRWA is a United Nations agency established by the General Assembly in 1949 and mandated to provide assistance and protection to some 5.6 million Palestine refugees registered with UNRWA across its five fields of operation. Its mission is to help Palestine refugees in Jordan, Lebanon, Syria, West Bank, including East Jerusalem and the Gaza Strip achieve their full human development potential, pending a just and lasting solution to their plight.
