Highlights:
  • India has contributed $5 million to the UN Palestine refugee agency and called for ensuring sustained fiscal support for the organisation's work.
  • The cheque for the amount was handed over to the United Nations Relief and Works Agency (UNRWA) for Palestinian Refugees by Representative of India (ROI) in Palestine.

  • The hike contribution comes at a time when the agency is facing a difficult financial situation due to decrease in voluntary contributions from a limited donor base and is seeking financial support for its work.
  • The UNRWA has been providing health, education, relief and social services, as well as emergency humanitarian assistance, across its five areas of operations in Jordan, Lebanon, Syria, West Bank, and the Gaza Strip since 1950.
  • Separately, as part of the government of India's ongoing assistance programmes in Palestine to strengthen capacity-building efforts focused on institutions, services and training personnel, India is providing 150 places for Palestinian professionals every year at Indian institutes under the Indian Technical and Economic Cooperation (ITEC) programme.
  • This is in addition to 100 educational scholarships given to Palestinian students to study at the level of graduate, postgraduate and doctoral programmes.
  • India is also funding eight developmental projects worth $59 million, which include building a 215-bed super-speciality hospital in Bethlehem.
  • The ongoing projects are a part of the India-Palestine development partnership announced during Modi's visit to Palestine.
