UNRWA and the Millennium Development Goals

As UNRWA has been committed to the welfare and human development of Palestine refugees for over six decades, it is not surprising that the objectives of the (Millennium Development Goals) MDGs have always been a substantial part of the Agency’s mandate. Every day UNRWA implements the MDGs through the provision of education, health, relief and social services, infrastructure and camp improvement, and micro-credit assistance to over 4.7 million refugees, spread over five geographic areas – Jordan, Lebanon, Syria, the West Bank and the Gaza Strip.
