In response to the Gaza conflict last summer, the UK has already provided £9million to the UNRWA Gaza Flash Appeal which has been used to provide rental subsidies and cash assistance.

The UK also remains the third largest donor to the UNRWA General Fund, providing £106.5million between 2012 and 2015. Future funding decisions will be based on an assessment of need and the resources available.
