What is a refugee?

Refugees are people who are forced to flee their home country due to conflict or persecution.

Why are you running away from your home country?

  • Deterioration of security due to conflicts, etc.

  • race, religion, sexual orientation, etc.

    persecution for cause

There are many reasons for persecution, including being a certain religion or race, political opinions, and sexual orientation.

Some people are forced to flee due to wars and conflicts, such as in Ukraine and Syria, others are targeted for attack because they are of a different ethnicity, and others are sentenced to death for being homosexual. The reasons for fleeing one's own country vary depending on the person.

refugees of the world

It is estimated that there are approximately 36 million refugees in the world, and approximately 62 million internally displaced persons who have taken refuge within their own countries.

Where does it come from?

Syrian, Ukrainian, and Afghan refugees make up more than 50% of the world's refugees.

Where are you going?

Only a limited number of refugees are able to flee to developed countries such as Japan, Europe, and America, and more than 80% flee to neighboring low- to middle-income countries.

How do you escape?

Many refugees flee on foot or by car to neighboring countries, with only the clothes on their backs, without having time to prepare for their trip.

Jordan and refugees

Jordan has been accepting refugees since the 1920s because it is surrounded by unstable countries such as Syria, Iraq, and Palestine/Israel.

After the Syrian conflict, it is said to have accepted approximately 1.2 million Syrians, accounting for approximately 10% of the population.

What difficulties do you have?

  • tough life

    With an unemployment rate of around 20%, job opportunities in Jordan are not as plentiful as in developed countries, and Jordanians themselves live in difficult conditions.

    It is difficult for foreign refugees to find work, and many rely on support from international organizations, NGOs, and relatives.

  • restrictions on freedom

    Refugees are not afforded the same rights as nationals, making it difficult to obtain work permits and limiting the types of jobs available to refugees.

    Others may face restrictions on migration and freedom of movement, leaving them in a precarious situation.

By providing jobs to refugees whose freedom is restricted and it difficult to earn an income, we provide them with an opportunity to earn a stable income and lead a "normal life."
