Jerash CAMP - Born & Bred Without Rights
Dec 7, 2018
Jerash camp was set up as an "emergency" camp in 1968 for 11,500 Palestine refugees and displaced persons who left the Gaza Strip as a result of the 1967 Arab-Israeli war. It is known locally as Gaza camp.
Jerash camp is the poorest among the ten Palestine refugee camps in Jordan, with 52.7 percent of Palestine refugees having an income below the national poverty line.
Hanan Refugee Relief Team works daily to transition refugees in Jerash Camp into contributing members of their host communities by providing long-term solutions, such as housing, labor opportunities, and medical relief.

Thank you for helping purchase a home for a refugee family of 4 children living in sewage who were not receiving aid from any organization. They moved to their new house on day of Eid.
This family was not receiving aid from any organization. The house purchase came as a total surprise to them. The children’s expressions of joy upon seeing their new house was priceless. They were happy to “have windows, and to be able to sleep without cockroaches or rats”. Thanks you for your support in helping to change the lives of these 4 children in countless ways!
Special thanks to Faten Taneeb and Haifa Kaleed !
