February 8, 2019
The European Union (EU) has contributed with EUR 12 million to the United Nations Relief and Works Agency for Palestine Refugees in the Near East (UNRWA) in support of humanitarian health programmes in the Gaza strip. The Agency operates 22 primary healthcare centres across Gaza.
The EU’s humanitarian contribution, which was provided under the title “Integrated Emergency Healthcare Support to Vulnerable Palestine Refugees”, will enable UNRWA to sustain the provision of its vital health-care services at the Agency health centres across the Gaza Strip.
The European Union is the largest multilateral provider of international assistance to Palestine refugees. Over the past five decades, the European Union has been a steadfast supporter to UNRWA in its five fields of operations.
