star this property answer text <p>No UK aid is used for prisoner payments or the fund to which you refer. UK aid to the Palestinian Authority (PA) is used exclusively to pay the salaries of vetted health and education public servants, including teachers, doctors and nurses, in the West Bank. Our money goes into a special, dedicated bank account before being paid to individuals who have been vetted in advance through the European Union Palestinian-European Socio-Economic Management Assistance Mechanism (PEGASE), ensuring UK funding is not diverted. The UK has never allocated aid to the Martyrs Fund to which you refer and we have always had financial safeguards in place to ensure UK aid reaches the intended beneficiaries. UK aid to the PA in 2018 helped immunise up to 3,700 children, provide around 185,000 medical consultations, and educate around 24,000 young Palestinians.</p> more like this

This is being delivered through the United Nations Children’s Fund (UNICEF) to support critical water and sanitation needs identified by the appeal. UK funding is helping to provide clean water and rehabilitate sanitation facilities to stop the spread of disease, benefitting up to 1 million Gazans. Additionally the UK is a long-term supporter of the UN Relief and Works Agency for Palestinian Refugees (UNRWA), which provides basic services to 1.3 million people in Gaza, including basic health care.</p> more like this

Most recently I spoke to the UN’s Resident Coordinator/Humanitarian Coordinator for Yemen, Lise Grande, on 14 June. We are also in regular contact with the World Food Programme (WFP) which delivers the majority of food aid into the country at Ministerial level with WFP’s Executive Director David Beasley.</p><p> </p><p>The UN estimates that 17.8 million people in Yemen do not have reliable access to food and 8.4 million people face extreme food shortages. Our funding of £170 million to Yemen this financial year 2018/2019 includes support to meet the immediate food needs for 2.5 million Yemenis, and brings the total UK bilateral support to Yemen to over £570 million since 2015.</p> more like this
