during COVID-19

This United Nations agency for Palestinian refugees  is the #1 source of humanitarian aid for millions of Palestinians. UNRWA's multi-faceted aid provides food, medicine  and medical personnel, housing, education, and so much more. The Trump administration shocked the world when it cut all humanitarian aid to the Palestinian people, thereby drastically cutting a large portion of UNRWA's budget. Since then, UNRWA has been struggling to replace that aid; they have been forced to cut programs that are millions of Palestinians' only lifeline. 
UNRWA is truly on the frontlines of the battle with Covid-19 in Palestine.
