SDF hands over to UNRWA urgent funds to aid Palestinians

The Saudi Development Fund (SDF) and United Nations Relief and Works Agency for Palestine Refugees in the Near East (UNRWA) have signed at the Geneva headquarters of the United Nations a memorandum of understanding under which US $20 million will be given as urgent aid to the Palestinian people. The money will finance a project for the construction of some 700 residential units, complete with infrastructure and essential educational, medical and social facilities, to provide housing for Palestinian families affected by the demolition of their homes in Rafah.
