UNRWA and the SDGs: SDG 1 No Poverty

21 October 2019

Today is the International Day for the Eradication of Poverty. Throughout its 70 years of operation, UNRWA has adopted a holistic approach to tackle poverty and the disruptive effects associated with decades of displacement for Palestine refugees.

Access to free primary health care, basic education, livelihood opportunities, relief and social services, shelter and environmental health are critical to ensuring that Palestine refugees have the fundamentals to overcome the multidimensional nature of poverty.
