Statement on restoration of funding to UNRWA
The Episcopal Church applauds the Biden administration’s decision to restore funding to the United Nations Relief and Works Agency for Palestine Refugees (UNRWA). This agency provides vital humanitarian assistance such as health care, education, and emergency food assistance to Palestinian refugees throughout the Middle East. U.S. support of UNRWA is critical to providing many essential services for Palestinians, and The Episcopal Church has advocated for restoring funding to UNRWA since that funding was suspended. Thank you to all our advocates who have worked with us to resolve this issue. Many dire humanitarian needs remain, and The Episcopal Church will continue to advocate for vital assistance programs.
