The refugee crisis

The biggest problem facing Jordan, a small nation with no oil and limited natural resources, is the refugee influx caused by conflicts in neighbouring lands. More than 3 million of its population is of Palestinian descent and it houses nearly 600,000 displaced from Syria. Reliant on services and tourism, the Hashemite kingdom is ever increasingly dependent on foreign aid to cope with the refugee crisis, and also suffers from poor availability of water and sanitation but can boast one of the best health systems in the region.

 Islamic Help has already helped tens of thousands of refugees in Jordan and with your support can help even more. Please donate

Helping Syrian refugees, orphans, delivering healthcare and education

The bulk of Islamic Help’s work since starting in Jordan in 2012 has been the delivery of food, water and clothing to Syrian refugees in camps and in Syria itself. Our work, especially during Ramadan 2013, benefited more than 40,000 people in camps or arriving at the Syria-Jordan border. In addition, we have an orphan sponsorship programme for nearly 800 orphans in Jordan, all but a handful of them Palestinians as the Palestinian population has restricted legal and social rights. Education and healthcare projects are also being instigated for Syrian refugees
