PRC ready to hold International Conference on UNRWA

Preparations are well under way and PRC’s management board, staff members, and volunteers are ready to hold an international conference titled UNRWA at 70: Responding to Crises and Building a Just Future on Saturday, November 30.

The conference comes at critical time for UNRWA and for Palestine refugees.

Drawing together UN officials, former UNRWA staff members, pro-Palestine activists, and prominent academics from around the world, the conference will tackle the desperate situation facing Palestine refugees and the most efficient way for UNRWA to continue to operate in support of Palestinians despite the continuous pressure by the US and Israel to end the agency’s mandate.

UNRWA is a United Nations agency established by the General Assembly in 1949 and mandated to provide assistance and protection to some 5.4 million Palestine refugees registered with UNRWA across its five fields of operation. Its mission is to help Palestine refugees in Jordan, Lebanon, Syria, West Bank, including East Jerusalem and the Gaza Strip achieve their full human development potential, pending a just and lasting solution to their plight. Its services encompass education, health care, relief and social services, camp infrastructure and improvement, protection and microfinance.
