Italy Approves Additional Funding to UNRWA

The Italian government approved, on Monday, additional funding to United Nations Relief and Works Agency (UNRWA) programs in Lebanon and in the Gaza Strip.

A press release by the Italian Consulate in Jerusalem said that Italy approved an additional funding of EUR 3.5 million in support of UNRWA.

Italy’s additional contribution comes after the United States, the largest donor to UNRWA, announced that it is cutting all funding to the agency, last month.
