Bishop of Southwark asks about funding of non-governmental organisations in Palestine:

The Bishop of Southwark received the following written answer on 26th October 2022:

The Lord Bishop of Southwark asked His Majesty’s Government which Palestinian registered non-governmental organisations they fund; and with which they have contact.

Lord Ahmad of Wimbledon (Con): UK aid provides humanitarian and development assistance to some of the poorest and most vulnerable communities in the world. In doing so, we partner with a wide range of organisations who are best placed to deliver these much-needed services. Civil society organisations play an important role in upholding human rights and democracy, and they must be able to operate freely in the Occupied Palestinian Territories (OPTs). More information about UK development programmes in the OPTs and our partners can be found on DevTracker.
