How to help a Palestine refugee

How to help a Palestine refugee

1 November 2011

Would you like to help West Bank farmers whose trees have been uprooted by settlers?

How can I help a Palestine refugee (PDF) outlines how you can make a difference in the lives of Palestine refugees in Gaza, Jordan, Lebanon, Syria and the West Bank.

In the last few years, UNRWA has been forced to cut back on its basic services, programmes and projects. Financial contributions have not increased sufficiently to keep pace with inflation and the growing refugee population.

Our average spending each year for each refugee has fallen from about $200 in 1975 to around $110 today.

Your contribution could fund school feeding for children in Gaza, provide health care for isolated refugee communities in the West Bank, or support university scholarships for some of the poorest refugees in Jordan.

UNRWA appeal to the Gaza Union: UNRWA appeals to the staff union in Gaza not to drag some 219,000 innocent children into their escalating campaign of industrial action. The children of Gaza, living under the Israeli blockade and the constant threat of military action have suffered enough.
