80 percent of Gaza receiving financial aid, UNRWA reports

More and more young people, including school-aged children, have to drop out of schools and go onto streets to make a living in Gaza, according to a report released by the United Nations Relief and Works Agency for Palestine Refugees in the Near East (UNRWA) recently.
