$300 million needed to help Gaza and West Bank

17 January 2012

Palestinian refugees in Gaza and the West Bank continue to depend on outside help to survive.

The UN Agency for Palestinian refugees (UNRWA) has appealed for just over $300 million to continue its projects in the territories.

UNRWA says three years after the end of a sustained Israeli attack on Gaza, the humanitarian needs of the people there remain widespread and acute.
