The European Union, Denmark and the Palestinian Authority inaugurated on 11 December two multipurpose buildings in Al Ma’sarah and Marah Mi’allah villages in Bethlehem governorate. Both buildings are located in Area C of the West Bank. The total area of the two buildings is 630 square meters and they will serve more than 2,000 Palestinian citizens.
The European Union provided €310,000 and Denmark provided €215,000 to support the building of the social infrastructure in Al Ma’sarah and Marah Mi’allah villages respectively.
"By investing into projects in Area C, we invest in the future State of Palestine. Projects like the ones we inaugurated today will help bring a positive change to the lives of Palestinian families in this area. The EU will continue to supports projects promoting economic development and improving the quality of life of Palestinian communities in Area C in areas such as private sector, environment and agriculture," said Simone Petroni, EU Head of Political Section.
