More than 120,000 benefit from ERC’s winter aid in Jordan

WAM: The Emirates Red Crescent (ERC) has intensified its humanitarian efforts and relief programmes to reduce the repercussions of the severe cold and bad weather conditions on the lives of the affected and refugees in Jordan.

The country provided more winter aid to benefit more than 120,000 people in several Jordanian governorates. The assistance included heating devices, blankets, and winter clothes, along with food parcels and children’s supplies.

The ERC team present in Jordan supervised the distribution of assistance to the affected Jordanians and the Syrian refugees in the Emirati-Jordanian Mrajeeb Al Fhood Camp and other camps in Jordan.

Aid was also distributed outside camps to relatives or those hosted by Jordanian families. The UAE philanthropic organisation has allocated a large amount of aid to vulnerable segments, people of determination, the elderly and children, to protect them from the low temperatures and severe cold and limit the outbreak of winter diseases.
