India Contributes US$ 5 Million to UNRWA in Support of Palestine Refugees

The Government of India has contributed US$ 5 million to the United Nations Relief and Works Agency for Palestine Refugees in the Near East (UNRWA) in support of the Agency’s core programs and services, including education, health care, and relief and social services.

The contribution was presented to UNRWA by the Representative of India to the State of Palestine, Sunil Kumar.

India has increased its annual financial contribution to UNRWA from US $1.25 million in 2016 to US$ 5 million in 2018 and 2019.

India’s increased contribution to the Agency in 2018 contributed significantly to helping UNRWA address an existential funding crisis.

Representative of India Sunil Kumar expressed appreciation for the commendable work and endeavors carried out by UNRWA in the region. He underscored India’s steadfast support for the Agency’s activities across its five fields of operation and the provision of assistance to some 5.5 million Palestine refugees, helping them achieve their full human development potential. India has made a strong appeal to other traditional donors of UNRWA to consider enhancing their contributions, as well as to non-donor member states, to consider contributing to the Agency in solidarity with the Palestine refugees.

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.
