The donation signing ceremony, held at UNRWA’s Nuzha Girls School, was attended by the Ambassador of Malaysia to Jordan, Mohamad Nasri Abdul Rahman, Acting Director of UNRWA Affairs at the Jordan Field Office, Olaf Becker, and officials from the Embassy of Malaysia and UNRWA.

The ambassador stated that the contribution came from Malaysia’s Humanitarian Trust Fund for the People of Palestine, which was established in 2002. Malaysia, he said, continues to provide “undivided support and solidarity for the Palestinians”.

During the event, Becker also briefed attendees on UNRWA's operations in Jordan, which include providing humanitarian services in education, healthcare, relief, social services, infrastructure development, and emergency response to serve more than 2.3 million registered Palestinian refugees living in Jordan.

UNRWA, whose operations rely heavily on donations, expressed its appreciation for the contribution from Malaysia, stating that it will support its schools in providing consistent education for refugee students.
