JHASi has always sought to save and support all vulnerable in need regardless of nationality within the primary health care clinics and the frequently conducted missions. Thus, under Polish Aid in Dec 2017, JHASi established a training center to host various trainings for all staff working in Zaatari, and conduct health sessions for Syrian refugees. Moreover JHASi uses the center for coordination meetings and working groups.
The project ‘Support for Syrian refugees in the Zaatari Refugee Camp and Jordanians in the Mafraq and Irbid Governorate in the field of social assistance and shelter‘ is co-financed within the framework of the Polish development cooperation of the Ministry of Foreign Affairs of the Republic of Poland.
Accordingly JHASi conducts various health sessions for the Syrian community in Zaatari Camp through the Polish Center, tackling daily health challenges.
The sessions will target head of households (males and females) and is set to include the following topics;
- Pediatric emergencies.
- Addressing venomous bites, cut wounds, fever, burns, fractures, and excessive coughing.
- Personal hygiene.
- Health education sessions to demonstrate the different medical situations and how to respond.
Furthermore, special sessions will be conducted for mothers on building personalized first aid kits based on different identified cases of communicable and non-communicable disease.
In addition to the Polish center, JHASi in partnership with Polish Medical Mission and Polish Aid also implements a program in support of Syrians Refugees in Zaatari camp and vulnerable Jordanians in Irbid and Mafraq Governorates in the field of social assistance and shelter, by providing them with hygiene kits, food parcels, shelter maintenance, and replanting plants.
The scope of work was divided into the following Activities:
- JHASi identified targeted groups for shelter maintenance and distribution of replanting activities to Syrian Refugees in Zaatari Camp and Jordanians in Mafraq and Irbid Governorates.
- JHASI conducted various meetings with UNHCR camp management, and participated in the Basic Needs and Livelihood Working Group (BNLWG), to share our program objectives and activities. JHASi agreed with UNHCR recommendations to share a list of beneficiaries in Zaatari for our activities in Zaatari Camp, in order to prevent any overlapping with other ongoing shelter maintenance programs by other organizations.
- JHASi engaged in pre-assessment work for shelters with photos and GPS for each. The Assessment was based on CBOs and in coordination with Community Leaders.
- JHASi conducted health awareness sessions and distributed hygiene kits and food parcels for Syrian refugees living outside of camps in the Mafraq Governorate. As for Jordanians, JHASi communicated and coordinated with NAF to share a list with JHASi of most-vulnerable Jordanians in Mafraq and Irbid Governorates.
