UN Relief and Works Agency for Palestine Refugees (UNRWA) urgently needs $130 million to cover its budget deficit for this year, spokesman Kazem Abu-Khalaf said yesterday.
Speaking to Palestine Voice radio, Abu-Khalaf said the money is needed to help UNRWA continue offering basic health, education and relief services.
He reiterated on the continuous efforts being exerted by the organisation in order to raise the funds needed to deal with its financial crisis.
Abu-Khalaf said that UNRWA is planning to coordinate with donor states in the coming years in order to afford a predictable budget which would guarantee the retention of its basic services.
