Bethlehem, 16 Shafar 1434/29 December 2012 (Ma’an/MINA) – Japan has donated $2 million to the United Nations agency for Palestinian refugees, a statement from UNRWA said Thursday.
The donation will go towards emergency bedding materials and hygiene kits for adults and babies in the Gaza Strip. It will also help provide non-food items to assist UNRWA in combating the effects of Israel’s recent war on Gaza, which killed at least 170 Palestinians.
In 2012, Japan donated $22.5 million to the UN agency. (T/R-012/R-006)
