Speaking at a conference in Japan, Commissioner-General Filippo Grandi has urged East Asian countries to support UNRWA, and raised concerns about the situation of the Palestine refugees served by the Agency.
I would like to join other speakers in thanking the Government of Japan and the State of Palestine for organizing this important conference. Japan has long been a partner to the Palestinians and to UNRWA
UNRWA Commissioner-General Filippo Grandi yesterday welcomed a Saudi Fund delegation to Rafah, Gaza, to celebrate the building of thousands of Saudi-funded homes for Palestine refugees displaced by the 2008-2009 conflict.
Horrific images captured by news agencies, and reports of numerous casualties and the flight of Palestine refugees from Yarmouk camp are being followed up and assessed by UNRWA with extreme worry and grave concern.
