Mission Statement

American Friends of UNRWA, Inc. is a nonprofit organization that supports the work of the United Nations Relief and Works Agency for Palestine Refugees in the Near East (UNRWA). Our mission is to promote a life of dignity and human development for Palestine refugees by informing the American public about UNRWA's work and generating support for its programs through fundraising, education, and advocacy.

Description

UNRWA was established by United Nations General Assembly Resolution 302 (IV) in 1949 following the 1948 Arab-Israeli conflict to carry out direct relief and works programs for Palestine refugees. The United Nations Relief and Works Agency for Palestine Refugees (UNRWA) provides humanitarian assistance, human development, protection, and advocacy for some 5 millionregistered Palestinian refugees living in the West Bank, Gaza, Syria, Lebanon, and Jordan. Approximately 98% of UNRWA's funding comes from voluntary contributions made by UN member-states and generous donations from private organizations and individuals.

The NURWA have a collection an passionate people, that are organized and understand how to delegate takes to the volunteer. Any person can randomly join as a volunteer and get right into the mix. They make everyone feel welcome to the event, no matter the physical or psychological appearance.
