UNRWA USA National Committee (UNRWA USA) aims to promote a life of dignity and human development for Palestine refugees by informing the American public about UNRWA’s work and generating support for its programs in the Gaza Strip, the West Bank (including East Jerusalem), Syria, Lebanon, and Jordan. It is dedicated to showing Palestinian refugees that Americans care. UNRWA USA National Committee is a separate nonprofit corporation from UNRWA, the United Nations Agency for Palestine Refugees in the Near East.
