Emergency appeal progress report 29

By the end of 2005, UNRWA had received pledges for US$120 million, or 65% out the US$185.8 million requirements set out in the Emergency Appeal for 2005. Of the sum pledged, US$45.5 million was earmarked for housing reconstruction in Gaza and is therefore not available to support vital revenue-based elements of the programme such as jobs, food and cash. By the end of December, the Agency had yet to receive 37% of the sums pledged.
