Protecting palestine refugees

UNRWA is uniquely positioned to contribute to the protection of Palestine refugees, with over 65 years of experience and 32,000 staff across the region who are largely embedded in the Palestinian community. UNRWA identifies human rights mechanisms that are most relevant to Palestine refugees' concerns and prioritizes interactions where it can provide timely, factual, and reliable information. This has included interventions relating to Palestine refugees' economic, social, and cultural rights, such as the right to adequate housing, health, education, and water. The Protection Framework describes protection threats, needs & consequences, services & programmes, and advocacy for Palestine Refugees.
