Funding For The Work Of Unwra In Support Of Palestinian Refugees

EDM number 817 in 2017-19, proposed by Richard Burden on 17/01/2018.
Categorised under the topics of International development, Middle East, North America and United Nations.

That this House is appalled by the announcement by the US Administration that it is to cut its funding for the United Nations Relief and Works Agency by more than half; notes that this decision threatens the human security of millions of Palestinian refugees, including those in need of emergency food assistance and other support in Jordan, Lebanon, Syria, the West Bank and Gaza; is concerned that this will also impact on Palestinian refugees' access to primary health care and the right to education of 525,000 boys and girls in 700 UNRWA schools; and calls on the Government to reaffirm the UK's support for UNRWA, to ask the United Nations Secretary General to convene a special conference to develop new funding alliances to secure the future of UNRWA, to make representations to the World Bank and IDB Trust Fund urgently to consider the case for supporting UNRWA and to promote the public appeal for funds that UNRWA has launched.

This motion has been signed by a total of 57 MPs.
