Oxfam in Jordan

Oxfam has been working in Jordan since the early 1990s. In 2013, Oxfam scaled up operations to respond to the Syrian refugee crisis, providing essential humanitarian assistance to Syrian refugees and vulnerable Jordanian households. Given the protracted nature of the crisis in Syria, Oxfam has re-oriented its programming in Jordan to promote more sustainable solutions to the needs of crisis-affected Syrians and Jordanians.

Today, Oxfam’s work in Jordan prioritizes three key areas which define our programs and policy influencing work: Emergency WASH & Water governance; Gender Justice and Economic Justice.
