Media have exposed a damning report by the ethics office of the UN Relief and Works Agency (UNRWA).
It details credible, corroborated allegations by UNRWA staff of shameful behaviour by the agency’s top officials. Sexual misconduct. Nepotism. Discrimination. Retaliation. Abuses of authority for personal gain.
In other words, whistleblowers have uncovered what we have long known to be true: UNRWA is toxic and must be held accountable.
Canada’s funding commitment to UNRWA was paid in full last year and there is no new Canadian funding on the horizon. Now is the time to speak out.
We are calling on the Government of Canada to impose a total moratorium on new funding for UNRWA until a thorough investigation is completed and real change is implemented.
Take action now!
