These are the people you, the New Zealand taxpayer, are funding.

The Government has not suspended funding for the United Nations Relief and Works Agency for Palestine Refugees in the Near East (UNRWA). Under our current three-year arrangement with the Agency (2021/22-2023/24), New Zealand provides UNRWA with NZ$1 million in funding annually to support their provision of essential humanitarian assistance for Palestinian refugees. Our next payment is due by mid-year.
