World Health Day 2020

In the fight against the Coronavirus (COVID-19) UNRWA staff are on the frontlines

UNRWA joins the rest of the world on this World Health Day in the midst of a crisis without precedent in living memory as the coronavirus (COVID-19) continues to circle around the globe. It is a virus that is ‘menacing the whole of humanity’, as UN Secretary-General Antonio Guterres has said, and ‘the whole of humanity must fight back.’ UNRWA today celebrates all the Agency’s staff members and brave UNRWA medical and environmental health workers who stand on the frontlines, unwavering and untiring, to fight this invisible enemy which has already changed life as we know it. Without them, there would be no response. They are the heroes of this historic moment and we will prevail because of them. UNRWA stands with you today, as it has for the past 70 years, to confront this new and unprecedented challenge.
