The conflict in Syria is causing the emigration of its population to neighboring countries, that in their turn lack resources to accommodate them.
In this context, the FPSC, in consortium with RESCATE, APS and MPDL, seeked to respond to the needs of particularly vulnerable Syrian refugees and Jordanian host population, and specifically to people with disabilities in Madaba (Jordan).
To this end, the project included:
- Equipment and start up of fitness and psychosocial centers.
- Support for technologic, therapeutic, physical and occupational assistance to particularly vulnerable population and their families, including those with special needs.
- Access to protective services on gender violence and sexual and reproductive health.
The actions initiated ensured equal participation of men and women.
Protection activities were held from two JOHUD community centers, one located in the capital, and another in a rural area. From this type of community centers, humanitarian aid and care for refugees are centralized and although they are sponsored by the Jordanian monarchy, they are for public use and managed by local committees that arise within the community.
