DFID does not currently fund Save the Child’s Heart charity in Holon, Israel. Any future funding decisions will be informed by an assessment of need and where DFID can most effectively contribute in the OPTs. DFID is providing £349 million in support of Palestinian development from 2011-15. DFID’s bilateral Palestinian programme contributes to UK policy objectives of a negotiated two-state solution.
