Emergency Appeal progress report 23

Covering period 1 Oct - 31 Dec 2003

By the end of 2003, UNRWA had only received 45 percent of its total requirements as set out in its two Emergency Appeals of 2003. The Agency was again forced to reprogramme its response toward food aid, direct employment, and cash assistance. Lack of funds meant a cancellation or severe curtailing of priority programmes in the area of education, health and shelter repair and reconstruction.
