UNRWA workers in the West Bank protested announced job cuts by UNRWA today. 956 employees in Gaza and 194 employees in the West Bank were supposed to be cut.
The spokesman for the Arab Workers’ Union in UNRWA, Mohammed Shalabi told Wafa that UNRWA was delaying the opening of the new school year, causing parents to register their kids in other schools.
He noted the number of students in UNRWA schools declined by 5,000 students during the past five years.
Which brings up a basic question:
If the parents have other options besides UNRWA schools, then why does the world need to finance UNRWA schools in the territories?
We have lots of ideas, but we need more resources to be even more effective. Please donate today to help get the message out and to help defend Israel.
