A Representative Office of Republic of Slovenia to the Palestinian Authority in Ramallah was established in October 2007. In May 2014 the Government of the Republic of Slovenia changed its status into the Representative Office of the Republic of Slovenia in Palestine.
The office supports the efforts to resolve the Israeli-Palestinian conflict through negotiations towards a two-state solution, peace and stability.
Humanitarian and development projects
Slovenia has actively assisted Palestine through many humanitarian and development projects, most notably through the rehabilitation of children from the Gaza Strip. Since the Gaza Project’s inception in 2009, more than 300 children and young adults were medically evaluated. One hundred children and young adult victims of the conflict received treatment at the Soča University Rehabilitation Institute in Ljubljana in nine groups. In parallel, 18 Palestinian therapists were trained in rehabilitation. With the contributions of international donors, Slovenia raised 1,3 mio Euros for this purpose.
