The international community’s support and the Jordanian efforts have helped UNRWA overcome its financial crisis in 2018, director of the relief agency’s operations in Jordan, Roger Davies, said on Saturday.

Davis said that the financial support extended by new donors, in addition to the current ones, contributed to bridging UNRWA’s deficit gap which amounted to $446 million, the Jordan News Agency, Petra, reported.
