Sweden increases annual financial support for Palestinians

Sweden has increased its annual contribution to the United Nations Relief and Works Agency for Palestine Refugees in the Near East (UNWRA) to $40.6 million, UNWRA announced in a statement released on Tuesday.

Sweden has provided more than $693 million dollars since 1993 and is considered one of the top donor states to the UN organization.

“The decision to increase our core funding to UNRWA shows the great importance that Sweden attaches to the Agency and its work for Palestine refugees,” said Sweden’s Consul-General Ann-Sofie Nilsson.
