Humanitarian Situation and Needs

As of July 2016, Jordan is the country hosting the third largest number of Syrian refugees with 657,433 registered with UNHCR. In Jordan, the first response to the needs of the refugees was carried out by the host communities alongside Jordan civil society and charity organizations. However, the constant influx of people put significant strains on the already weak economic situation of the Jordanian population in the areas of refuge, with around 79% of the refugees living outside of camps.

Refugees struggle to meet their basic needs, relying on dwindling savings, growing loans, humanitarian assistance and resorting to negative coping mechanisms. 2/3 of the Syrian refugees live below the poverty line, with rent being their major expenditure.

Addressing fundamental needs of the most vulnerable refugees and restoring dignity is a priority to be achieved through improved access to health for most vulnerable groups, psycho-social support for the most affected population, proposing alternative education for children out of school, improve living conditions for households and supporting access to legal documentation (and thus to services).

With the conflict in Syria being nowhere near a political solution, refugees and host communities will continue to co-exist and while tensions are raising in the communities, it is paramount to empower the communities to bounce back ensuring i) social cohesion, ii) development of sustainable economic opportunities and iii) support to public services.

Our action in the field

Since 2013, PUI has been responding to the needs of most vulnerable populations affected by the Syria crisis in host communities. Through a community-based approach, the objectives of PUI in Jordan are the following:

  • Provide emergency/life-saving cash assistance to the most vulnerable population to meet their basic needs
  • Improve access to services for most vulnerable populations in host communities
  • Support initiatives at community level to ensure social cohesion and economic empowerment opportunities for most vulnerable populations.

The three pillars of PUI’s strategy to encourage social change include a) Knowledgeand awareness raising of women, girls, boys, men and community influential related to health, importance of education, prevention of early marriage and child labour/abuse, rights and promotion of services uptake, b) provision of services (informal education, PSS, life-skills activities, health education sessions and counselling, case management including referral and follow-up) and alleviating measures such as cash transfers for reproductive health or education c) strengthen the capacities of community and local actors.**
