UNRWA, the The United Nations Relief and Works Agency for Palestine Refugees in the Near East, was created by the UN General Assembly in December 1949 and is dedicated solely to the welfare of Palestinian Arab refugees. All other refugees throughout the world receive support from the Office of the United Nations High Commissioner for Refugees (UNHCR).
Since 1951, the UNHCR has found long-term solutions for the refugee groups for which it was responsible, and through legal protection and emergency aid has successfully helped over 25 million refugees start over and begin new lives. On the other hand, no sustainable solution has been found for the Palestinian refugees in the 63 years since the 1948 war.
