US Ambassador to the UN Linda Thomas-Greenfield visits an UNRWA girls school in Ramallah as she continues her first regional tour as a Biden envoy into the West Bank.
“I spoke to UNRWA officials about how to make their work stronger, more efficient and more accountable,” she tweets.
The Biden administration has restored millions of dollars in funding for the UN agency for Palestinian refugees, but has also called on UNRWA to institute reforms amid allegations of corruption and incitement against Israel.
Today, I met with educators and students at Jalazone @UNRWA Girls School in Ramallah. I was inspired by their stories and dreams for the future, and I spoke to UNRWA officials about how to make their work stronger, more efficient, and more accountable. pic.twitter.com/MREcnTnSzb
