<<First Name>> --

This week marks a devastating anniversary for Palestinians: 50 years of the occupation of the West Bank including East Jerusalem, and the Gaza Strip.

In 1967, UNRWA had already been providing services to Palestine refugees displaced by the Nakba for 17 years. The Naksa -- the new wave of displacement caused by the June 1967 war and subsequent Israeli occupation of the West Bank and Gaza -- warranted the establishment of 10 new refugee camps, and UNRWA expanding its services to newly displaced Palestinians in need. Refugees still live in these camps today.

Please continue to stand with Palestine refugees, <<First Name>>.

For decades, generations of Palestinians -- refugees and non-refugees -- have persevered as their land is confiscated, their families separated, and their rights repeatedly violated. UNRWA will continue to stand with Palestine refugees, no matter what, until they receive a just and durable solution to their plight.

Today, and every day, we remember those, still refugees, living under an occupation that becomes more entrenched every day. We honor them as they continue to hope for a brighter future.

Thank you for being one of the tens of thousands of concerned and compassionate supporters in the United States who stand with Palestine refugees. Please continue to support our mission through your generous giving, <<First Name>>.
