War broke the social and business ties that bound neighbors to their community. Millions scattered, creating the largest refugee and displacement crisis of our time. About 6.7 million Syrians are now refugees, and another 6.2 million people are displaced within Syria. Half of the people affected are children.
More Syrian civilians flee amid the recent violence escalation on Syria’s northeastern town of Ras al-Ain in the Hasakah province along the Turkish border.

45 plus Syrian Refugee families in Jordan were abandoned by their sponsors and urgently need our support to survive.
During the seven years of conflict in Syria, over 660,000 registered Syrian refugees have sought refuge in the small nation of Jordan.
In a country with high unemployment and limited natural resources, opportunities for Syrian refugees to work legally are extremely limited. Refugees have found themselves trapped in limbo with little to do but wait – for over half a decade. Many are in constant fear of arrest or deportation.
The UHR team in Jordan has received many calls from refugee families who have been abandoned by their sponsors without warning. The situation has been investigated and it is confirmed by the Ministry of Social Development that these families no longer receive any form of assistance. These families do not have permits and are 100% dependent on aid received from relief organizations. Their rent was paid in full, and they received cash assistance for food, water, health and education.
Syrian refugees in Jordan are left desperate without any new sources for employment or way to support their families. UHR is appealing on their behalf for your generous support for families who have lost everything. They are depending on you to continue living month to month.
• $200 covers the rent for one month for one family
• $100 for food, water and hygiene for one month
• $50 for health and education for one month
• For $4,200, you can sponsor a family for an entire year.

Over 5.6 million people have fled Syria since 2011, seeking safe refuge in neighboring countries: Jordan, Lebanon, and Turkey. Millions more are displaced inside crisis stricken Syria as the war continues.
Jordan is one of the countries most affected by the Syria crisis, with the second highest share of refugees compared to its population in the world, 89 refugees per 1,000 inhabitants. The majority of Syrian refugees in Jordan live in urban areas and in poverty: over 85% live below the poverty line. 48% of refugees are children, and 4% are elderly. This is a huge burden on the Jordanian government. Government of Jordan has taken steps to open formal employment opportunities for Syrians, but it was not enough.
According to the UNHCR, “though most Syrian refugees in Jordan live in host communities, the country is now home to the second largest refugee camp in the world. Known as Zaatari, the camp first opened in 2012 less than 10 miles from the Syrian border and has since become Jordan’s 4th largest “city.” Today, 78,000 Syrian refugees live there in rows of prefabricated shelters provided by international relief agencies.”
UHR’s MAIN CONCERN
Thousands of Syrian refugee families are still without any source of income, especially families of widows and elderly. Many live in old homes and shelters. Men and women have to beg every day to be able to pay rent at the end of the month. Elderly women are forced to clean homes and schools to put food on the table at the end of the day.
Children are our main concern. Many Syrian children are living in refugee camps in Jordan. Due to their unfortunate circumstances, they are being deprived of their childhood. They do not have access to food, healthcare, security or education.
WHAT WE DO
Syrian refugee families are dependent on charity from organizations like United Hands Relief to survive. Through UHR’s Refugee Family Assistance Program, we assess the situation of certain families living in Northern Jordan with the assistance of the Ministry of Social Affairs and Development. Selected families are provided with monthly assistance:
1. Eligible Syrian refugee families receive a monthly food voucher from UHR, which enables them to purchase nutritious food items.
2. Families monthly rent is paid off by UHR
3. Family members receive healthcare they need.
4. Children receive free education and nutritious meals to school.
Through our innovative and cost-effective programs, United Hands Relief strives to protect families, especially children from violence, abuse, and neglect. Our program targets children who have seen hardship and experienced conflict, and we assist them in overcoming these difficult circumstances.
