The United Nations is imploring member countries to fill a critical funding gap the Trump administration created by sharp cuts to a program that helps Palestinian refugees across the Middle East.
The U.N. is holding a pledging conference Monday to raise money for basic services for 5 million refugees in the Gaza Strip, the West Bank, Jordan, Lebanon and Syria.
Nearly 2 million men, women and children in Gaza are experiencing shortages of water, electricity and medical care.

The U.N.'s Relief and Works Agency for Palestinian Refugees is spearheading the relief effort.
