The Union Government of India on 4 September 2013 gave one million US dollars to the United Nations Relief and Works Agency (UNRWA) for providing food and medicines to Palestinian refugees.

The financial assistance to the UN agency was given as a part of India's annual contribution to it. UNRWA is funded almost entirely by voluntary contributions from the UN member-states.


• After 1948 Arab-Israeli conflict, UNRWA was established by United Nations General Assembly resolution 302 (IV) of 8 December 1949 to carry out direct relief and works programmes for Palestinian refugees.
• UNRWA provides assistance, protection and advocacy for some 5 million registered Palestinian refugees in Jordan, Lebanon, Syria and the occupied Palestinian territory, pending a solution to their plight.
• UNRWA is the main provider of basic services – education, health, relief and social services – to 5 million registered Palestine refugees in the Middle East.
