Islamic Help set out to help Syrian refugee mothers who were expecting by setting up the Birth clinic in Irbid, Jordan. Our commitment includes:

  • Paying for the birth delivery costs 
  • Providing ante-natal and post-natal care, and nutritional support to pregnant women and essential nutrition to malnourished new-borns 
  • Saving the lives of, and ensuring the well-being of, pregnant refugees, mothers and new-borns.

The Birth Clinic was planned as a focal point of services to Syrian pregnant women, mothers and babies. From initial check-ups to determine the expected date of delivery, it will link them to partner medical service providers for deliveries.

Between its opening in 2015 and October 2019, it has seen more than 23,700 patients.

During that time, 3,672 babies have been born healthy and safe to Syrian refugee mothers helped by the Clinic.

As well as normal deliveries, it includes Caesareans in cases of emergency or where complications jeopardise the mother’s or/and baby’s health and safety
