Emergency Appeal progress report 10

Covering 1-30 September 2001

Pledges to UNRWA’s Third Emergency Appeal increased considerably over the period 15 September to 15 October, and reached 65 per cent of the US$ 76.9 million required. However, contributions actually received amounted only to US$ 8.3 million, or less than 11 per cent of funds required.

UNRWA relief activities nevertheless picked up again during September with the arrival of new consignments of food in the Gaza Strip, enabling food distribution to recommence.
