Syria crisis: Micro-projects completed

With THW’s official handing over of three ambulance vehicles to the Jordan relief organisation Jordan Health Aid Society (JHAS), three micro-projects could be completed in Jordan. Besides the ambulance vehicles, a generator for the provision of emergency power at the hospital of Dleil was also handed over.

In the future, the organisation JHAS will use the ambulance for the transport of ill and injured people from the camp of Za´atari to the nearby hospital of Dleil. Furthermore, they will allow the transport of injured Syrian refugees directly from the border to hospitals in the proximity. Mr Qais Jardat, honorary Vice-President of JHAS and deputy department head at the Jordan health ministry, expressed his thanks for the Germany support and called the ambulance vehicles an “excellent help for the quick emergency care of Syrian refugees”. With the financial means of the Foreign Office and in cooperation with Jordan relief organisations, THW has realised several micro-projects for the direct and indirect benefit of Syrian refugees.


THW has operated in Jordan since April. The Federal Ministry of the Interior commissioned THW not only to deal with the increasing influx of refugees, but, at the request of the Foreign Office, instructed the authority in July to support Jordan authorities and relief organisations in building the refugee camp near the Jordan town of Za’atari, by cooperating with UNHCR. Meanwhile, the tent town accommodates more than 30,000 refugees.
