MSF statement on cease of funding to UNRWA

MSF is deeply alarmed by the decision of some countries to suspend their funding to UNRWA, which is a lifeline for millions of Palestinians in Gaza Strip, the West Bank and the region.

In the Gaza strip, the humanitarian crisis has reached catastrophic levels, and any additional limitations on aid will result in more deaths and suffering. Humanitarian organizations are already grappling to meet even a fraction of the urgent needs in Gaza. Much more aid is required to meet those needs, not less. The consequences these cuts in funding will have on the ground contradict the provisional measures issued by the International Court of Justice on Friday (26th January), which include immediate measures to ensure sufficient humanitarian aid flows into Gaza.

MSF continues to call for an immediate and sustained ceasefire, and for the lift of the siege to allow increased and continuous humanitarian supplies to cross into Gaza for the nearly 2.2 million people in the enclave.
