Kuwait to contribute over $42 million to UNRWA

Nov. 14, 2018 4:29 P.M. (Updated: Nov. 16, 2018 10:49 A.M.)
BETHLEHEM (Ma'an) -- Kuwait announced, on Wednesday, a contribution of an additional support of $ 42,100,000 million to the United Nations Relief and Works Agency for Palestine Refugees (UNRWA).

UNRWA's financial crisis comes after the United States announced in mid-January the reduction of financial support to UNRWA from $350 million to $60 million, in order "to urge the Palestinians to resume negotiations with Israel."

The contributions from the U.S. made up a third of the agency's budget, according to UNRWA's website.
