The Jordan Humanitarian Fund (JHF) mobilizes and channels resources to humanitarian partners to respond to urgent needs for Syrian refugees in Jordan, as well as vulnerable Jordanians affected by the Syrian crisis. The fund operates within the frame of the Jordan Response Plan and the UNSC resolutions 2165, 2191, 2258 and 2332.
To date the Fund has allocated US$11.9 Million to a total of 33 projects in host communities and camps, of which 11 projects support the needs of vulnerable Syrians in Southern Syria.

She lives in Azraq refugee camp situated in the cold Jordanian desert. Together with her husband, Nihad (48), and four of their six children, she fled her home in Homs in 2016.
She has not seen her two eldest children in three years.
“I am dying to hold Hiba in my arms,” says Hiyam, talking about her eldest daughter, who got married before the war and travelled to Mecca. Their eldest son fled to Turkey.
How has the war in Syria impacted access to higher education?

The United Nations Relief and Works Agency for Palestine Refugees in the Near East (UNRWA) launched today two international appeals totaling US$ 813 million to fund the emergency response to the crisis in the occupied Palestinian territory, including East Jerusalem, and to meet the critical humanitarian needs of Palestine refugees affected by the conflict in Syria, including those displaced into Lebanon and Jordan.
