The United Nations agency for Palestinian refugees (UNRWA) needs more than $40 million to continue its work for this year.

That's what Filippo Grandi, the UNRWA Commissioner General says in his annual report to the General Assembly's Committee that deals with political and decolonization issues.

Mr. Grandi tells UN Radio's Reem Abaza that he reported about the impact of the Syrian crisis on the situation of Palestinian refugees in the region.
