Qatar opens an office in Jordan to help solve the refugee crisis

The Jordan office is among the thirty offices of Qatar Charity around the world.

Qatar Charity opened an office in Jordan in a ceremony attended by the Minister of State and Chairman of Qatar Charity's Board of Directors, Sheikh Hamad bin Nasser bin Jassim Al Thani.

Al-Thani presented honorary shields to Qatar Charity's partners in the Hashemite Kingdom, such as the Jordan Hashemite Charitable Organization (JHCO),

The Jordanian Hashemite Fund for Human Development (JOHUD), the King Hussein Cancer Foundation, and the Arab Medical Relief (AMR).

The Kingdom hosts more than two million Palestinian refugees registered with the United Nations Relief and Works Agency for Palestine Refugees. It also hosts nearly 1.4 million refugees who fled the war in Syria in 2011.

C will provide humanitarian services across Jordan, to support those in need, whether in camps or in communities and regions hosting refugees.

According to Qatar's ambassador to Jordan, Sheikh Saud bin Nasser bin Jassim Al Thani, Qatar Charity is keen to alleviate the suffering of Syrian refugees and ease the burdens on countries of asylum, especially Jordan, due to its limited resources.
