Supporting shelter needs of Syrian refugees and vulnerable Jodanians

There are approximately 1.27 million Syrians in Jordan now, half of them registered as refugees. 21% of refugees shelter in camps, and 79% of Syrians are so-called urban refugees living in cities, peri-urban and rural areas. Most Syrians live in northern and central Jordan. 27.2% of refugees registered with UNHCR found shelter in Amman province, 24.1%, 20.6%, 16.5%, and 2.9% live in Mafraq, Irbid, Zarqa, and Belqa provinces, respectively. Competition for resources has strained the capacity of state services and provoked a rise in the needs of the poorest local community that receives Syrian refugees. The quality of many social services deteriorated, specifically in sectors such as health, education, water and municipal services.

Supporting shelter needs of Syrian refugees and vulnerable Jodanians

The aim of the project is to improve the living conditions of the Syrian refugees and the poorest Jordanians, to support their adaptation skills and their ability to cope with problems. The project will cover the costs of renting flats and in this way will help the beneficiaries to cope with life’s problems such as the lack of stable accommodation, debt or the lack of adequate food or medical care. During the project’s first year, 1740 people will receive aid. In 2018, 1660 people will receive aid, 30% of whom will be the poorest Jordanians.
