AMMAN, Jordan (Ma‘an) 5 July -- The OPEC Fund for International Development has donated $2 million to UNRWA, the UN agency for Palestinian refugees said Monday. The contribution will assist the agency's job creation program for refugees in the Gaza Strip, UNRWA said in a statement. UNRWA said the funds would help to mitigate poverty in Gaza while reducing refugees' dependence on emergency assistance. The UN agency says unemployment stands at around 45 percent in the coastal enclave, one of the highest rates in the world.
