Food Distribution Jordan
Emergency Food Vouchers distribution to Syrian refugees in Jordan.
In a context of acute immediate needs, a funding crisis for humanitarian aid in the Syrian refugees, other refugees from Iraq, Somalia and needy Jordanians seriously jeopardizes the humanitarian community’s capacity to deliver lifesaving programming.
The Humanitarian national and International NGOs, are extremely concerned about the lack of adequate, flexible and reliable funding to meet those needs.
Across the countries, refugees have difficulties accessing livelihoods without putting themselves at serious risk. Refugees themselves have increased used up the assets and savings they brought with them from Syria. This combination of governmental restrictions, aid drying up, the inability to make a living, and against a backdrop of increasing tensions between host and refugee communities, and an increased strain on resources and services is making life increasingly desperate for refugee populations from Syria.
Noting that Jordanian services and communities have taken a massive burden with the presence of 620,000 refugees. Regional Response Plan which Muslim Aid is a partner in has directly targeted Jordanians in each of the sectors of Health, Education, WASH, Food Security, Cash/NFIs, Shelter and Protection.
Mostly all International agencies and Humanitarian NGOs are working inside the camps (Zaatary & Azraq), serving refugees, and leaving refugees in Urban areas with no solid support, which leads to a heavy burden on all kinds of services in the host community.
All of the above are in dire need for nutritional support throughout the year, our Emergency Food Vouchers distribution would be a support to those needy, vulnerable families, and it would be a second time that MA is implementing a Food Voucher project.
