Canada to provide emergency food and humanitarian assistance to Palestinian refugees
“Palestinian refugees face a dire humanitarian situation. Today’s announcement of new and exceptional emergency funding will provide humanitarian assistance to help meet the needs of the poorest and most vulnerable Palestinian refugees in the West Bank and Gaza.”
- Marie-Claude Bibeau, Minister of International Development and La Francophonie
The UNRWA’s Emergency Appeal for the West Bank and Gaza provides urgent humanitarian assistance, including food and other essential humanitarian assistance.
Previously announced Canadian funding helps the UNRWA to deliver quality basic education, health and social services to millions of Palestinian refugees, particularly women and children.
Previously announced Canadian funding also supports the UNRWA’s Syria Regional Crisis Emergency Appeal and helps provide emergency life-saving assistance to more than 480,000 Palestinian refugees in Syria and Lebanon.
Canada continues to support the UNRWA in improving its ongoing efforts to ensure a culture of neutrality and address alleged neutrality violations.
