Arab Donors Unit Update 2

01 January 2010

In 2009, Arab countries pledged an impressive $106.83 million to UNRWA’s activities. The largest contribution
came from His Highness the Amir of Kuwait who donated $34 million for Gaza’s Emergency Appeal. It was followed
closely by Saudi Arabia’s pledge of $25 million for the reconstruction of the Nahr el-Bared Camp in Lebanon. The
Agency additionally received $29 million dollars worth of in kind donations which were delivered to Gaza via the
Jordanian Hashemite Charitable Organisation.
