United States: A Long-Standing Partner of UNRWA

For over six decades, the United States has been a strong partner of the United Nations Relief and Works Agency for Palestine Refugees in the Near East (UNRWA). Members of the Advisory Commission since 1949, the U.S. is the largest bilateral donor to UNRWA and has long been one of the Agency’s most reliable supporters.

The United States’ exemplary and long-standing support is highly recognized and valued by UNRWA, allowing the Agency to ensure that the needs of the most vulnerable Palestine refugees are met.
