Focus on Jordan

Jordan’s economy is among the smallest in the region. With an insufficient supply of natural resources, the country relies heavily on foreign assistance. Chronic high unemployment rates, especially among youth and women, have taken its toll on the country. To add, Jordan plays host to a large population of refugees. As of last year, it’s home to 660,000 Syrian refugees as well as 2.3 million Palestinian refugees, many of whom lack access to basic needs and services. 

Islamic Relief’s Dedication to Jordan

Islamic Relief has been working in Jordan since 1997. Our goal is to provide emergency and long-term aid not only to residents of Jordan, but Syrian and Palestinian refugees alike. 

A few of our interventions include:

  • Food aid
  • Access to healthcare including the provision of a mobile clinic
  • Access to education
  • Access to other basic needs through cash assistance for vulnerable families; this includes female-headed households, orphan families, families with people suffering from disability or chronic illness, families living in shelters, and large-sized families
  • Economic empowerment and social inclusion for Syrian refugees and Jordanian host communities alike, especially women and youth
  • Humanitarian aid for Syrian refugees including immediate emergency aid as well as medical support for those afflicted with chronic kidney disease (CKD)
  • Humanitarian aid for Palestinian refugees including access to clean and safe water through the installation of solar water heaters in homes
  • Winter aid

We Need YOUR Help

Thanks to you, we’ve been able to accomplish so much. But there’s still so much more to do. By continuing to support our efforts in Jordan, you can help make a difference in the lives of those in desperate need.

PLEASE NOTE: Donations made to IRUSA’s Jordan fund may serve urgent or long-term programs in Jordan or for refugees from Jordan living in other countries.
