USD9000, 000 from Kuwait to aid Palestinians

(MENAFN) On Tuesday, Kuwait said that it will give USD900, 000 to the United Nations Relief and Works Agency for Palestine Refugees in the Near East (UNRWA), responding to a plea made by the agency over the Syrian crisis, reported the Palestinian news agency (WAFA).

This contribution represents the first pledge towards this appeal this year and Kuwait's contribution will go towards life-saving assistance provided to the Palestine refugees remaining inside Syria, said the agency.

The life of civilians in Syria is distrusted due to the Syrian war, which resulted into death and injuries, internal displacement, wide damage to civilian structure and persistent humanitarian needs.

"Palestinians are among those worst affected by the conflict. Of the estimated 438,000 Palestine refugees remaining inside Syria, over 95 percent (418,000) are in critical need of sustained humanitarian assistance to meet their most basic food and shelter needs," UNRWA said.
