Protecting Palestine refugees

15 September 2015

More than at any time in the past, Palestine refugees are in need of protection. They represent the largest refugee population in the world, with more than 5 million registered with UNRWA in its five fields of operation – Jordan, Lebanon, Syria, West Bank (including East Jerusalem) and Gaza. Today, UNRWA has integrated human rights and protection in its operations more than at any time in its history. With more than 65 years experience and 32,000 staff across the region who are largely embedded in the Palestinian community, UNRWA is uniquely placed to contribute to the protection of Palestine refugees.
