Today, dozens of nations came together to pledge political and financial support for the United Nations Relief and Works Agency for Palestine Refugees in the Near East (UNRWA) at an international ministerial conference. The conference, titled “Sustaining the Rights and Human Development of Palestinian Refugees,” was hosted by the foreign ministers of Jordan and Sweden; officials participated both in-person and virtually.
We are meeting today, at a time when UNRWA has an ambitious vision which I am pleased to outline. Our vision is to deliver our services in line with our times. It rests on the commitment to “Leave no Palestine refugee behind.” It is about ensuring that UNRWA services continue to accompany all refugees on their transformative journey towards self-reliance.
It is an incredibly important opportunity for us to present our plan for a transformed UNRWA and to solve our dire funding situation.
