About our UNRWA news

Latest news on the United Nations Relief and Works Agency for Palestine Refugees in the Near East (UNRWA), providing updates on the agency's humanitarian aid, education, healthcare and social services for over 5.6 million registered Palestinian refugees.

Established in 1949 following the 1948 Arab-Israeli conflict, UNRWA has been supporting the relief and human development of Palestinian refugees for over 70 years. Operating in five areas - Jordan, Lebanon, Syria, the Gaza Strip and the West Bank, including East Jerusalem - UNRWA employs more than 30,000 staff, predominantly Palestinians, across 711 schools, 139 health centres and 59 refugee camps.

Recent controversies have put UNRWA under scrutiny, with allegations of mismanagement, staff involvement in militant activities, and problematic educational content leading several major donors, including the United States, to temporarily suspend funding pending investigation. Reforms and increased transparency are being called for to ensure UNRWA can effectively carry out its crucial mandate.

Stay informed with our NewsNow feed on UNRWA for the latest on the agency's challenges and responses as it strives to provide life-sustaining services to millions of Palestinian refugees in a complex political environment. From funding crises to internal reviews, field developments to international diplomacy, our UNRWA news feed keeps you up-to-date on this critical United Nations agency at the heart of one of the world's most protracted refugee situations.
