Emergency Assistance and Safe Spaces for Crisis Affected People in Jordan

Publication Date: 02/11/2018

After the outbreak of the Syrian conflict in 2011, millions of Syrians fled to neighboring countries in search of refuge. Over 668,123 fled to Jordan, of which 8 in 10 are living outside of refugee camps. Since 2011, CARE Jordan has taken a leading role in responding to the needs of this population, conducting annual assessments of the Syrian urban refugee population in Jordan to tailor programming to refugees’ most pressing needs. Building upon these findings, CARE Jordan launched the Emergency Assistance and Safe Spaces for Crisis Affected People in Jordan project with funding from the Australian Government’s Department of Immigration and Border protection (DIBP) between July 2016 and July 2018. CARE Jordan partnered with local CBOs to implement the project, which has an overall goal of enhancing socio-economic wellbeing and quality of life for the refugee and host population in Jordan. Specifically, the project aimed to: (1) increase access to sustainability livelihoods for Syrian refugee and host community women; (2) improve the psycho-social coping mechanisms of vulnerable individuals; (3) increase the access of Syrian refugees and vulnerable Jordanian host populations to emergency cash assistance; and (4) increase the access of Syrian refugees and vulnerable host populations to information, case management and protection support.
