720 refugee families in Gaza receive support for reconstruction and repair works

06 April 2016

UNRWA was able to disburse over US$ 5 million in funding available for reconstruction (US$ 2.65 million) and severe repair works (US$ 2.42). The funds will reach a total of 720 refugee families across the Gaza Strip. The families will be able to access this assistance through local banks this week.

Emergency shelter – including support for home repairs, reconstruction and interim shelter solutions – is a top priority for UNRWA. The Agency remains committed to supporting affected families yet requires new funding to continue the shelter cash assistance programme.
