Polish aid to Gaza
Poland is allocating PLN 1 million in response to the UNRWA Gaza Emergency Appeal.
Poland responded to UNRWA's appeal for aid to the Gaza Strip, which has been seriously affected by the recent conflict. Many of the buildings used by the Gaza residents on a daily basis have suffered from cannon fire and air bombing.
UNRWA (The United Nations Relief and Works Agency for Palestine Refugees in the Near East), supported by Poland for many years, has been running schools in the Gaza Strip. One of them is the Elem co-educational school at the Nuseirat refugee camp, located in the middle of the Gaza Strip. Together with UNRWA, we are building special, safe shelters in this school, which will ensure the safety of children and staff in the event of an attack, and will also serve educational programs. The shelter (DES – Designated Emergency Shelter) is an autonomous project, equipped with its own water intake, desalination system, power generator and even solar energy systems. The project will therefore be used not only during the attack, but its infrastructure will serve the needs of children on a daily basis.
Polish aid in the amount of PLN 1 million, thanks to the work and commitment of our partners from UNRWA, will go where it is most needed.
