The UN Relief and Works Agency (UNRWA) suspended its cash assistance programme for repairs to damaged homes in Gaza due to a shortage of funds last month. The UK has provided £9million to the UNRWA Gaza Flash Appeal, and remains the third largest donor to the UNRWA General Fund. The UK has also used its influence as a predictable, multi-year donor to UNRWA to set incentives for change, including linking funding to reform and results.
