The ICRC in Jordan

22 March 2016

The ICRC has been present in the Hashemite Kingdom of Jordan since 1967, as part of its international humanitarian mandate. It carries out a wide range of activities in the country, including assisting refugees and host communities affected by the Syrian conflict, restoring family links, visiting detainees, promoting International Humanitarian Law (IHL) and developing cooperation with the Jordan Red Crescent Society (JRCS).

The ICRC delegation in Amman also dispenses a number of services to other ICRC delegations, such as providing logistical support to the ICRC's relief operations in the Middle East region and beyond, providing training to staff members from 29 ICRC delegations and to Red Cross and Red Crescent national societies, and by serving as a base for a number of ICRC experts in fields such as mine risk education, protection, and water and habitat, who deliver their services in Jordan and other ICRC delegations in the region.
