UNRWA Sends Gratitude to the Media Centre for Helping in Overcoming its Shortfall for the Year 2018
Mr. Abdirahman Aynte, Director of the Strategic Partnerships Division at UNRWA, Amman expressed his deepest gratitude to Engineer Ghazi Mortaja, Director of the Media Centre and to An-Najah Broadcasting Channel (NBC) for the strong solidarity with Palestine refugees this year through the channel.
Mr. Aynte paid tribute to the Channel's support that enabled UNRWA to overcome one of the most challenging years in its 70-year history overcoming 446 million USD shortfall, which was a direct result of the US Government’s decision to stop funding UNRWA.
He stressed the importance of supporting Palestine refugees at their most vulnerable moment which made a consequential difference and reported that UNRWA shortfall for 2018 now stands less than 20 million USD.
He commended the role of NBC in achieving this accomplishment through free advertisement spots it has allocated to UNRWA this year opening many funding opportunities for them and reconnecting them with the Arab World in ways which they have not seen for decades.
Mr. Aynte concluded his letter: "We remain grateful to you for the unwavering commitment to help Palestine refugees realize their full human potential. And we sincerely hope to continue partnering with you."
