It is evident that, the most prosperous UN member state, i.e. the US, is not inclined to augment the UNRWA’s finances, notwithstanding the lead humanitarian role being played by the UNRWA in Gaza and the West Bank. Countries like India and those from the European Union, should step in as even-handedly as possible and induce a change in the stance of the major donor countries towards UNRWA and its activities. A debilitated UNRWA will only increase the misery of the Palestinians.
