Summary

The devastating conflict in Syria that began on 15th March 2011 has claimed around 400,000 lives and created over five million refugees. Over 660,000 Syrians have sought refuge in Jordan (UNHCR data portal 6 August 2017), many of them crossing the border through the towns of Jaber and Ramtha.

Islamic Relief’s work in Jordan began in 1997 with an orphan sponsorship programme, and in 2011 we scaled up our activities to provide emergency assistance to those affected by the violence in Syria.
