In 2020, UNRWA had to confront both the pandemic and a drastic financial shortfall, while responding to anxious expectations for support by the Palestine refugees. UNRWA responded to the additional needs of Palestine refugees from the social and economic consequences of the COVID-19 pandemic, which led to a further cost to be borne by the Agency.
