Senior Supply Chain Officer
The DRC has been operating in the Middle East for over a decade, running a combination of emergency, livelihood, protection and advocacy programmes. In addition to the new Jordan programme, DRC has significant programmes in Iraq, Lebanon and Syria and a Regional Office in Amman, all working on issues related to Iraqi or Syrian displacement, as well as Palestinian and Migration issues.
Currently 95,000 Syrians have either registered in Jordan, or are waiting to do so. The Jordanian government estimates that an additional 100,000 Syrians are living in Jordan illegally and choosing not to register with the authorities/UNHCR. Of this population, approximately 47,000 reside in Za’atari refugee camp, with the remainder either being hosted by Jordanian friends and relatives – or paying commercial rent.
Significant protection and shelter/NFI issues have been identified as priorities over the coming winter months, but DRC intends to develop a more holistic approach to the Syrian crisis- recognizing the need to increase protection and self-reliance amongst the population whilst reducing the impact on the hosting communities.
DRC is currently implementing projects aiming to provide capacity building to the appointed NGO by the Jordanian Government to manage the Zaatari camp in Mafraq Governorate and to provide the appointed NGO with a contingency stock of winterization materials.
