Jordan - Syria Refugee Relief fund

by CARE Vetted since 2009

Summary

The appalling attack on April 4 on civilians in Idlib shows the ongoing horror for people inside Syria and lays bare the mirage of the nominal 'ceasefire'. People in Syria need more than the words of concern and condemnation which we heard today. The long line of atrocities against civilians in Syria must be brought to an end. The attack is an urgent wake-up call that shows why talk of returning refugees to Syria is at best premature, and in fact outright dangerous.

Challenge

As of 19 Jan, 2017, UNHCR had registered in 655,496 refugees in Jordan with UNHCR Jordan's resettlement operation, the largest in the world. Since November 2015, 33,800 Syrians had received work permits, but approx. 296,284 other refugees are still looking for it. Currently, there are approximately 93% of Syrians who live outside of camps living under the Jordanian poverty line. . The majority of refugees who live in camp settings also suffer serious competition for resources and services.

Solution

In the launch of the 2017 UNHCR Azraq program, CARE will play a vital role in facilitating different employment opportunities, including vocational training and needs assessment. Additionally, CARE will continue with the Urban Refugee Protection Program which supported 8500 individuals with winterization assistance in 2016 CARE is also part of the campaign against gender based violence campaign that raise awareness within the community to prevent violence against women and early marriage.

Long-Term Impact

After years of heavy bombardment and deadly clashes, Syria will need massive support for reconstruction, so the international community is right to be thinking to the future. How this happens, and when, is of critical importance. International support should be conditional on a political solution being agreed, respect for human rights and protection of an independent civil society.
