Jordan

Jordan is one of the countries most affected by the Syria conflict, currently considered the second highest refugee hosting country per capita with 89 refugees per 1,000 inhabitants.

Current situation

More than 83 percent of refugees in Jordan live outside of camps; 86 percent of these live below the poverty line. In the face of an economic decline and funding cuts, many refugee families in the country struggle to access basic services and meet their basic needs. Poverty levels have recently increased by 38 percent among Jordanians and 18 percent among Syrian refugees.

Why we are there

DRC has been active in Jordan since 2003, when it first responded to the Iraqi refugee crisis. In 2013, DRC launched a multi-sectorial response to the Syrian crisis in Jordan.

What we do

DRC in Jordan focuses on providing protection and economic recovery. Our activities encompass both critical emergency response and sustainable long-term solutions.

DRC works to strengthen the protective environment, encourage self-reliance among vulnerable households and communities, and provide access to basic services and livelihood opportunities for displacement-affected communities in seven governorates across the Kingdom, including Azraq refugee camp.
