Humanitarian Relief Continues as Syrian Refugee Crisis Intensifies

Emergency Appeal: This region has been marked with civil unrest, which has led to an unimaginable humanitarian crisis. There is a massive refugee population with many living below the poverty line. Entering its 8th year, this ongoing crisis in Syria has left an estimated 465,000 people dead with more than 50% displaced as numbers continue to climb from recent attacks. Of the over 4,810,216 registered Syrian refugees 635,324 are residing in Jordan where 86% are living below the local poverty line. Over 13.5 million people are in urgent need of humanitarian assistance inside the country.

HHRD Work: In 2013 HHRD became a registered NGO in the region and has been actively engaged with 9 of its humanitarian programs which have helped well over 1 million people in Jordan, Lebanon and Tunisia.

Shelter Relief Program:

The program aims to provide a decent shelter for Syrian refugee families in Jordan, especially those in remote places or camps and the widows with their orphan children. This program has allowed HHRD to distribute Micro-homes and construct an orphanage. Currently, 52 Syrian refugee widows and their children are living in the orphanage until they transition into the local area. The construction of Micro-homes in Jordan through our "Caravans of Hope" campaign has helped familes secure a roof over their heads and protection from environmental elements.
