Guyana pledges US$150,000 in support of Palestinians affected by Gaza crisis


See below full release from the Ministry of Foreign Affairs and International Cooperation: 

The Government of Guyana has pledged USD 150,000 towards the United Nations Relief and Works Agency for Palestine Refugees in the Near East (UNRWA), in support of Palestinians displaced and affected by the ongoing conflict in Gaza.

UNRWA is the primary humanitarian agency in Gaza, with over two million people depending on it for their daily survival.

Guyana’s contribution to UNRWA aligns with our appeals for a more robust international response to the ongoing situation in the Gaza Strip and the protection of civilians impacted by the ongoing conflict. To this end, as an elected member of the United Nations Security Council, Guyana supports a ceasefire to facilitate humanitarian aid into Gaza.

Over the years, Guyana has made several financial contributions to UNRWA, in alignment with our consistent support for and solidarity with the Palestinian people in their quest for freedom and a secure homeland.

Further, Guyana is a member of the Committee on the Exercise of the Inalienable Rights of the Palestinian People.

The Government of Guyana looks forward to a new day for Palestinians and Israelis beyond the constant shadows of war. Guyana is prepared to work as a member of the UN Security Council and with the entire UN membership to accelerate the vision of two independent states living side by side in peace and security, and of a peaceful Middle East.

    $150,000 US ???? Why don’t you up that to $500.000 US ?
    Show the world Guyana has a heart, stop all business dealing with the ZIONISTS, kick them out of Guyana.
    Don’t ever again, do business with them. NUT-IN-YAW-WHO is a mass murderer committed GENOCIDE IN GAZA. And the US, EU, UK helped this NUT-Killer.
    Citizens in the diaspora should not vote for BIDEN – 2024 for his role in Gaza- with Palestinians’ blood on his hands and face of the USA.
