Organizational snapshot

UNRWA human development and humanitarian services encompass education, health care, relief and social services, camp infrastructure and improvement, microfinance and emergency assistance, including in times of armed conflict.

The United Nations Relief and Works Agency for Palestine Refugees (UNRWA) is funded almost entirely by voluntary contributions from UN Member States. UNRWA also receives some funding from the Regular Budget of the United Nations, which is used mostly for international staffing costs.

UNRWA USA is a community of people and partners committed to showing Palestine refugees that Americans care. It serves the human, social, and economic needs of Palestine refugees living in Gaza, the West Bank (including East Jerusalem), Jordan, Lebanon, and Syria. UNRWA USA lifts up the voices, experiences, and humanity of Palestine refugees to secure American support for resources essential to every human being, for the promise of a better life.
