With 35% of the population estimated to be Palestinians seeking safety, as well as over half a million Iraqi refugees, there is barely enough work to go around, and many families remain unemployed and unable to support themselves. Conditions in refugee camps are extremely poor – there is little or no access to water or electricity, squalid conditions which lead to disease and vermin infestations, and a severe shortage of doctors and medical staff to treat illness.

Islamic Relief in Jordan

We began work in Jordan in 1997, extending our orphan sponsorship programme to the country, as well as beginning Ramadan and Qurbani projects on a yearly basis.

Today, we support refugees in the Baqa’a camp, as well as providing relief and shelter to those fleeing the Syrian conflict to seek safety in Jordan.
