Italy contributed EUR 1.5 million to the United Nations Relief and Works Agency for Palestine Refugees (UNRWA) to support the provision of emergency education to vulnerable Palestine refugee children in Yarmouk camp, Syria.
Thank you very much Director-General Mme Tatiana Valovaya for hosting me and making it tradition to have the first Executive Briefing of the year with UNRWA and to present our needs to the diplomatic community in Geneva.
Last August was a special month for Palestine refugee children in Ein el Tal refugee camp, north-east of the Syrian city of Aleppo. Since returning to the camp in 2017
More than 550,000 Palestine refugee children learn in Syria, Jordan, Lebanon, the Gaza Strip, and the West Bank, including East Jerusalem, in over 700 UNRWA-run schools.
