Refugees in Jordan come from Iraq, Sudan, Somalia and Syria. They express their desires for the future as well as the challenges they face daily.
Beirut, 25 April 2013 - Jordan has fast become a cross-roads for refugees from across the region. In the sprawling capital city of Amman there are people from Iraq, Sudan, Somalia, Yemen and Syria, most of whom are faced with many difficulties with integration and survival on a daily basis. 

"To accompany, to serve and to advocate is the mission of JRS. But the most important thing today in the Middle East is how to accompany and how to serve... We are people with others, for others", says Nawras Sammour SJ, Regional Director for Jesuit Refugee Service Middle East and North Africa. 

In this video refugees from different backgrounds give voice to their experiences and daily struggles, but also to their personal hopes and accomplishments. JRS Jordan provides emergency relief, rent assistance, educational and pyschosocial support to refugees in Amman and northern areas of Jordan.
