Our work is guided by seven fundamental principles (humanity, impartiality, neutrality, independence, voluntary service, unity and universality).
The ongoing crisis in Syria has resulted in migration of over 2 million refugees to neighboring countries. In Jordan, many refugees seek refuge in camps.
