Syria: UNRWA - Progress Highlights ( January - June 2018 )

Wednesday, August 15, 2018

The United States, the largest single donor to UNRWA, announced US$ 300 million cut in funding in January, provoking the largest-ever-financial deficit facing the Agency. As a result, and following a sharp reduction in emergency income, the cash amount transferred to beneficiaries has started to decrease. While the Emergency Appeal planned for US$32 per person per month, UNRWA had to reduce the amount distributed during the first quarter of 2018.
