Short summary: Faced with a huge funding challenge, since the drastic reduction of the US contribution, the UN agency for Palestinian refugees (UNRWA) was present in Brussels, as part of the donors’ conference for Syria, organized by the EU and the UN on March 12-14, 2019 to ensure that the specific issue of Palestinian refugees from Syria will not be forgotten.
“We wanted to make sure that the fate and needs of Palestinian refugees in Syria or those who fled to Lebanon and Jordan are integrated into the decision-making processes, both human and financial,” he says Pierre Krähenbühl, director of UNRWA.
