Since the escalation of the Syrian crisis in April 2011, 6.6 million people have been displaced and 4.6 million refugees have had to leave the country, primarily to neighbouring countries. Jordan is therefore one of the main countries to take in Syrian refugees.
According to UNHCR figures (in December 2015), Jordan took in 1 000 630 refugees and asylum seekers. By 17th June 2015, Jordan had taken in 629 128 refugees.C’est ” Furthermore, living conditions for the Syrian refugees deteriorate as their savings run out, as they are not allowed to work in Jordan.”. There is ever-increasing shortage of accessible shelter and resources, which is leading to inflation and a de facto increase in the local cost of living.
Description of the mission
Première Urgence Internationale has had a presence in Jordan since 2013. Work is based in Amman, where the organisation’s Middle East regional office has also been based since 2011.
The NGO’s objective in Jordan is to supply multi-sector complete humanitarian aid to those affected by the Syrian crisis, in the governorates of Balqa, Amman, Jerash and Zarqa.
Premiere Urgence Internationale in action
While the needs of refugees and displaced people affected by the Syrian crisis have appreciably grown, our teams have managed to put in place a coherent humanitarian response aimed at both Syrian refugees and the most vulnerable Jordanian communities. Première Urgence Internationale’s strategy aims to develop existing areas for action with a global approach integrating rehabilitation and construction, protection, improvement in primary healthcare services ands psychosocial assistance.
