#DignityIsPriceless: QRCS, UNRWA launch humanitarian campaign to help Palestinian people
The United Nations Relief and Works Agency for Palestine Refugees in the Near East (UNRWA) and Qatar Red Crescent Society (QRCS) have launched a humanitarian campaign to help the Palestinian people under the theme of #DignityIsPriceless.
The campaign #DignityIsPriceless aims to raise over $1 million to implement a number of winterization projects for the benefit of more than 1 lakh Palestinians affected by the cold weather.
“This campaign is the first of the fruits of the framework memorandum of understanding (MoU) recently signed by QRCS and the UNRWA, to work together to provide diverse forms of humanitarian support for Palestinian refugees, within the shared goals and vision of backing the UNRWA’s services for the Palestinians where they are,” said Ali bin Hassan Al-Hammadi, Secretary-General of QRCS.
“The generous support from QRCS to the UNRWA comes at a critical time for 5.7 million Palestinian refugees at risk in the region,” Philippe Lazzarini, Commissioner-General of the UNRWA, stated.
