The United Nations and the Palestinian Authority Monday appealed for $350 million in humanitarian relief for Palestinians next year, saying they need more in the face of "record-low" funding. The 2019 Humanitarian Response Plan highlighted 203 projects to be carried out by 88 different groups, including U.N. agencies and nongovernmental organizations. The plan prioritized "the most vulnerable" 1.4 million Palestinians who are in need of food, health care, water, shelter and sanitation, Jamie McGoldrick, the U.N. humanitarian coordinator in Palestine, said. McGoldrick added that when United States ended the funding for the U.N. agency, which is responsible for helping 5 million Palestinian refugees, local aid work witnessed devastating outcomes.
