Filippo GrandiThe Commissioner-General of the United Nations Relief and Works Agency (UNRWA), Filippo Grandi visited India on 03-04 September 2013, to review the humanitarian assistance programme.

UNRWA and India exchanged views on a wide range of issues, including the recent developments in the West Asia region. UNRWA was presented a cheque of 1 million US dollars as part of India’s annual contribution to UNRWA, primarily for provision of food and medicines to the displaced people in the refugee camps under its various programmes. India's consistent support to the Palestinian people was appreciated during Filippo Grandi’s visit.

India has traditionally provided strong political support to the Palestinian cause at the bilateral, regional and international level. Additionally, it has been contributing economic and technical assistance to the Palestinian people, both bilaterally and through UNRWA.

UNRWA provides services and assistance to more than five million Palestinian refugees in West Asia in the form of education, health care, relief, community support and emergency response in times of armed conflict.
