About Us

UNITED NATIONS RELIEF AND WORKS AGENCY FOR PALESTINE REFUGEES IN THE NEAR EAST UNRWA

UNRWA is the United Nations agency responsible for responding to the humanitarian and development requirements of a population of some 4.7 million Palestine refugees living in the Gaza Strip, the West Bank, Jordan, Lebanon and the Syrian Arab Republic.  UNRWA is committed to assisting Palestine refugees in maintaining a decent standard of living, acquiring appropriate knowledge and skills, enjoying the fullest possible extent of human rights, and leading long and healthy lives.  UNRWA is the largest UN operation in the Middle East.   Most UNRWA staff are refugees themselves, working directly to benefit their communities - as teachers, doctors, nurses or social workers.
