The dignity of work

A project for Iraqi refugees in Jordan

Jordan, with its 6 million inhabitants, today hosts 2.7 million refugees. The Iraqi refugees are only (so to speak!) 60 000, while the Syrians are regularly recorded ten times as much.

An impressive reality because it documents – writes the General Director of Caritas Jordan to Agenzia Fides – “that the richest and most advanced nations are home to a limited number of refugees, despite in these countries there are forces who earn power precisely by fomenting the refusal to immigrants.”

“Jordan is open to all – continues Wael Suleiman, Director of Caritas, we are aware that we play an important humanitarian mission, and we want to continue.” However, the situation is “explosive” and “many Jordanians are now poorer than many immigrants.”

AMU has decided to work together with Caritas to help alleviate this emergency, with a project that is for the benefit of Iraqi refugees who, unlike refugees from Syria, are less protected and are not allowed to enter into regular work contracts. The project, which is also addressed to Jordanian citizens in need, consists in a series of training activities to give the opportunity to approximately 200 people to find a job or start their own. We also are setting up several micro-projects where the beneficiaries can practice during the training period and, if the activity consolidates, they will find a secure job.
