NRC in Jordan
Established in 2012 NRC Jordan s long-term outlook addresses the problems affecting life as a refugee. We work to build the resilience of Syrians, and to relieve the impact on the Jordanian communities that host them. Syrian refugees in Jordan are struggling. As they contend with difficult living conditions across the country, the obstacles are complex. They struggle to remain registered as refugees, to provide for their families, and to access essential services including education for their children. The Jordanian communities that host them, meanwhile, feel the impact of hosting high numbers of refugees with each year that passes, local infrastructure becomes more strained.
