We work with IRUSA to provide much-needed relief and emergency assisstance to vulnerable Palestine refugees. As a committed partner, IRUSA has been particularly dedicated to the plight of refugees in Gaza who have experienced reoccurring hardship through cycles of mass conflict and an economy stifled by sanctions and political instability. For example, thanks to the invaluable efforts of IRUSA, a 2016 partnership agreement allows UNRWA to provide healthier food baskets to 38,132 Palestine refugees in Gaza.

At a March 2015 meeting with IRUSA Chief Executive Officer Anwar Khan, UNRWA Commissioner-General Pierre Krähenbühl commented, “We are very grateful to have IRUSA as a committed and creative partner, especially during the past three years, where they provided timely and significant financial contributions in support of projects in Gaza.”

Over the years, IRUSA has supported the Agency’s work with over US$ 16 million, affecting thousands of families and helping empower Palestine refugees to achieve their basic needs and live with dignity.
