Japan donates $2 million to UNRWA

BETHLEHEM (Ma'an) -- Japan has donated $2 million to the United Nations agency for Palestinian refugees, a statement from UNRWA said Thursday.

The donation will go towards emergency bedding materials and hygiene kits for adults and babies in the Gaza Strip. It will also help provide non-food items to assist UNRWA in combating the effects of Israel's recent war on Gaza, which killed at least 170 Palestinians.

In 2012, Japan donated $22.5 million to the UN agency.
