The ongoing crisis in Syria is in its 6th year and as a result, 250,000 people have been killed with more than 50% displaced. From 4,810,216 of the registered Syrian refugees 635,324 are residing in Jordan where 86% are living below the local poverty line.
Over 13.5 million people are in urgent need of humanitarian assistance inside the country.
HHRD has been providing humanitarian relief and assistance to the Syrian refugees through the efforts of their Middle East North Africa (MENA) office in Jordan. This Jordan team has been actively engaged with enforcing 8 programs in Jordan, Lebanon, and Tunisia.
One of these programs is about education; it provides help by setting up schools at the Syrian border. They were able to help 2,227 students. Monthly stipends for educational costs along with home visits ensured sponsored children were on their way towards a more promising tomorrow. Those pursuing a college degree were also sponsored to attend local universities.
