Provide human rights education that empowers Palestine refugee students to enjoy and exercise their rights, uphold human rights values, be proud of their Palestinian identity, and contribute positively to their society and the global community
The United Nations Relief and Works Agency for Palestine Refugees in the Near East (UNRWA) was established in 1949 when nearly three quarters of a million Palestinians became refugees in the aftermath of the 1948 Arab- Israeli war.
UNRWA is one of the largest United Nations programmes, with over 30,000 personnel working across five areas of operations, and is unique in that it delivers services directly to its beneficiaries. UNRWA provides shelter, basic food supplies, medical aid, education, and work opportunities for Palestine refugees in its five fields of operations: Jordan, Lebanon, Syria, Gaza Strip and West Bank including East of Jerusalem. Today, 5 million Palestine refugees are eligible for UNRWA services.
UNRWA Procurement and Logistics Division (PLD) carries out the procurement tasks of planning, market research, purchasing, logistics handling and stock management of items procured locally and globally. The PLD provides Palestine refugees with high-standard goods and services, while striving to achieve best value for the money UNRWA receives from its donors. In support of this aim, the UNRWA procurement process is transparent, fair and in line with general UN procurement practices.
UNRWA regularly procures:
- Basic commodities including flour, rice, sugar, powdered milk and canned meat
- Pharmaceuticals and drugs
- General supplies such as school textbooks, equipment, ICT,etc.
- Vehicles and transport parts
- Professional services
- Work construction services to construct /reconstruct camps, and maintenance services.
