Dutch Monarch looks firsthand at community support project in Amman

Amman, Queen Maxima of the Netherlands, the UN Secretary-General’s Special Advocate for Inclusive Finance for Development, on Monday checked firsthand on the Community Support Committees project implemented by the Jordanian Hashemite Fund for Human Development (Johud) and the Office of the United Nations High Commissioner for Refugees (UNHCR).

During a visit to one of the project’s offices in the eastern Amman area of Nozha, the Dutch monarch was briefed on the project, its objectives and services provided to Syrian refugees and host communities.

The Community Support Committees project, implemented nationwide, aims to provide social protection services to refugees in the Kingdom. It is designed and implemented by a network of volunteer refugees and host communities, and includes educational, training, skills and awareness activities.

Queen Maxima talked with a number of refugees about the services provided to them through the project and the extensive facilities provided to facilitate their access to services.
