Meet Sadeen and Aisha (17)

What we do

War Child began its work in Jordan in early 2013 supporting vulnerable children and families caught up in the Syrian refugee crisis. Since then, we have continued to focus on giving children affected by violence the opportunity to reclaim their childhood and build a brighter future. We achieve this through a suite of evidence-based interventions focused on child protection, education and psychosocial support.

Our support in Jordan also extends to children's caregivers which helps promote children's wellbeing and learning at home. We also provide a network of ‘Safe Spaces’ where children from all communities can play, learn and grow in safety. This is of critical importance in refugee camps as well as local host communities.
