US President Donald Trump’s decision to cut funds to United Nations Reliefs and Works Agency for Palestinian Refugees in the Near East (UNRWA) sends concern to the residents of Palestinian refugee camps across the diaspora.

In the West Bank, Khaled al-Sheikh from Shufat Camp told Palestine Monitor there would be a “human disaster” if UNRWA cuts services to the refugee camps.

The services UNRWA provides to camps like Shufat include medical, educational, trash collection and various infrastructure.

In response to the US cut of $65 million, from the $125 million previously planned, UNRWA is launching the #DignityIsPriceless Global Campaign, in the hope to secure enough pledges to continue their services unnoticed.
