UNRWA promises to stay despite ‘fragile’ financial situation


The head of the United Nations agency for Palestine refugees Wednesday promised to work hard to ensure continuity of the agency’s services despite its “fragile” financial situation. UNRWA Commissioner-General Pierre Krahenbuhl said although there was no guarantee that the donors who helped cover the deficit in 2018 would give the same amount in 2019, every effort would be made to secure the necessary funding.
