The UK is a long-term supporter of UNRWA, between 2011 and 2015, DFID provided just over £200m to UNRWA, including £63.5 million in 2015/16.

The UK regularly engages in discussion with UNRWA and other donors about UNRWA’s financial situation.We are aware of the budget shortfall for children’s summer camps in Gaza this summer. The UK remains committed to support UNRWA and my officials remain in close and regular dialogue with UNRWA about its funding position.
