The Syria crisis is often described as the worst humanitarian catastrophe since the end of the Cold War. Inside Syria, 7.6 million people are internally displaced and 12.2 million are in need of humanitarian assistance, with 4.8 million in hard-to-reach areas. There are over 4 million Syrian refugees in neighboring countries. This is no short-term humanitarian episode. The devastating human consequences to huge numbers of people will endure for decades. The destruction of relationships, communities, livelihoods, homes and infrastructure will take years to repair.
The current number of refugees registered in Jordan with the UNHCR is around 657,099 according to the UNHCR report dated July 20th, 2016. However the government of Jordan Government claims that the official number of refugees (registered and unregistered) is around 1.3 million most of them living outside the refugees’ camps in urban areas especially in the northern part.
Because of the above mentioned the Relief Department was established in 2013 to help the refugees in Jordan and especially the Syrian Refugees living outside the camps in the urban area of Irbid and Al Husn.
The Relief Department started with the help of a Dutch organization called ZOA and since the date we have been working with big organizations such as TearFund and World Renew besides that we sometimes receives small donation from individuals and churches.
Most of our work since the start of the project was concentrated on Non Food Items (NFI), Food, and Unconditional Cash but we have the ability to grow on any direction required if we have more donations or the programs are designed for different activity.
Our organization has great relation with the Jordanian authorities, and we are trusted by them as we have everything done according to the regulations and rules they but.
Process and Criteria
Each Project that we work on has its own criteria of beneficiaries that we work according to it. At the start of the project all the workers and volunteers get briefed about the criteria we are working on and according to these points in our focal points:
1. Refugees register their name in our focal points if they fall under the criteria of our distribution
2. A questionnaire gets filled (the questionnaire is designed according to our needs and the data required at our end
3. All the questionnaire gets studied and filtered and the most needy get approved for distribution
4. We set a date for distribution and we inform the authorities about it and sometimes they send an employee from their side in order to supervise the work we do
