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 and 2258.

To date the Fund has allocated US $11.86 Million to a total of 38 projects in host communities and camps, of which seven projects support the needs of vulnerable Syrians in Southern Syria.

(New York, 8 February 2016) I am gravely concerned by reports that over 30,000 civilians have been displaced from Aleppo city and other areas in northern Syria over the past week, by heavy clashes and aerial bombardment by the Government of Syria, allied forces and armed groups. About 80 per cent of them are estimated to be women and children. We have reports that civilians have been killed and injured, and that civilian infrastructure, including at least two hospitals, has been hit.

The humanitarian community is appealing for US$861 million in 2016 to provide some form of humanitarian assistance to 7.3 million people. With the ongoing conflict, the humanitarian crisis in Iraq is likely to deteriorate in the year ahead.
