This event took place to mark the the 60th anniversary of the U.N. aid agency for Palestinian refugees which was also attended by Palestinian President Mahmoud Abbas. “I wished there was no anniversary to mark,” she said. “But you and I know the reality is very different. Their’s (the refugees’) life is very different. Their’s is a life interrupted, a life half lived. Hours wasted at checkpoints, another work day lost, another pay check canceled, worried about what the family will eat … praying for an aid parcel.”

Later that day, Her Majesty attended the 2009 Clinton Global Initiative where Queen Rania joined the panel of “Human Capital- Creating Good Jobs and Strong Communities”.
