Syrian refugees in Jordan seek to recover and return

PDA is responding to the ongoing Syria crisis in cooperation with our mission partner the National Evangelical (Presbyterian) Synod of Syria and Lebanon and our ecumenical partners in the ACT Alliance.

The assistance through our mission partner has been used primarily to assist the minority Protestant Christian community in the region.

Our assistance through ACT Alliance is providing humanitarian aid to more than 200,000 displaced Syrians both inside and out of the country. One area of assistance is to families in the Za’atari refugee camp in northern Jordan. Children and youth under 18 make up more than 55 percent of the population of the camp; so in addition to basic humanitarian needs of food, water and shelter, also being provided are community-based psychosocial support services, including a safe environment for children to play and school.
