There has beencivil unrest in this region, which has led to an enormous humanitarian crisis. With many living below the poverty line, there is a large refugee population. Syria’s current situation has left an estimated 465,000 people dead, entering its eighth year, with more than 50 percent displaced as numbers continue to grow following recent attacks.HHRD became a registered NGO in the region in 2013 and has been actively involved with 9 of its humanitarian projects in Jordan, Lebanon, and Tunisia, which has supported over 1 million people. HHRD’s efforts to revive the region and help its people have been consistent throughout, be it their food packages or shelter programs.
Orphan Support Program
Children have been affected the most by the ongoing Syrian crisis. The massive social and civil unrest in the region has left many children orphaned. HHRD supports and values the innocent lives through its ‘Orphan Support Program.’The program offers financial support, schooling, life skills, medical aid, social support through camps and field trips, and psychological support for mainly Syrian and Palestinian orphaned children in the region.
Shelter Relief Program
The program’s objective is to provide basic housing facilities for Syrian refugee families in Jordan, especially those living in remote locations or camps and widows living with orphaned children. HHRD was enabled by this program to allocate micro-homes and establish an orphanage. Presently, the orphanage is home to 52 Syrian refugee widows and their children before relocating to the local region.Through their “Caravans of Hope” initiative, the construction of Micro-Homes in Jordan has supported families put a roof over their heads and shield themselves from environmental elements.
Education Support Program
The civil unrest in the region has left educational facilities in the worst conditions, leaving no room for young children’s education. HHRD strongly believes in educating and nurturing young minds; hence, we have seen theorganizations’ impactful educational efforts. HHRD was able to benefit around 2,227 students through their family and higher education support networks. Monthly educational expenditure stipends along with home visits, ensured that supported children were on their way to a more prosperous future. They were also funded to attend local colleges for those seeking a college degree.
Skills Development Program
Skills Development Program is women-centric and focused on uplifting the women of the severely affected areas. This program aims to provide the appropriate skills for women in need to acquire a useful life role. And, in turn, to work or produce goods at home to eventually earn a living for themselves and their families. This program helps train women, including many Syrian refugees, and has distributed 37 sewing machines throughout the region.
The Syrian crisis is huge, and many people are left homeless, jobless, and hopeless. Moreover, there is a large refugee population living below the poverty line. However, HHRD’s efforts in helping the badly affected women, men, and children of the region are commendable.The world needs more organizations like HHRD to come forward to help the Syrian people.
