Enhancing the availability and the scope of psychological care for Syrian refugees in Irbid in Jordan

The current number of Syrian refugees in Jordan is estimated at more than 620 000. Some of these people live in refugee camps in different parts of the country. A large group lives in urban areas in many parts of Jordan, including Irbid. The refugees residing outside refugee camps have limited access to various forms of assistance that can be obtained in the camps.

Enhancing the availability and the scope of psychological care for Syrian refugees in Irbid in Jordan

The aim of the project is to fill the gap in assistance offered to refugees living outside refugee camps in the form of psychiatric and psychological support, from which over 10 000 people will benefit during the entire duration of the project.

Free Syria Foundation implements a program of psychological support in Irbid. The program is implemented with an experienced local partner – The Syrian American Medical Society Foundation (SAMS) operating since the beginning of the conflict and providing medical assistance to vulnerable groups.

The project will provide psychiatric and psychological assistance for the refugees from Syria who are in the worst condition and at the same time do not have access to assistance programs conducted in the camps. According to the Jordanian authorities in the areas of Irbid there are 83 000 Syrian refugees, most of whom are women and children.
