Prince of Wales visits local community support center

17 ,Nov 2021

Prince Charles, the Prince of Wales, visited on Wednesday the Nuzha Center for Community Support and met with local community representatives and a number of refugee families.

The center is a joint venture between the Jordanian Hashemite Fund for Human Development (JOHUD) and the United Nations High Commissioner for Refugees (UNHCR). Upon his arrival at the center, the Prince of Wales was received by JOHUD's Executive Director Farah Daghistani.

Prince Charles toured the center, specifically its UNHCR-funded learning laboratory, which is an educational platform that aims to improve the quality of education through digital learning platforms and other interactive activities such as robot making, chess and drawing.

Prince Charles also stopped by the center's playground, which includes a host of motion and intellectual games for children.

On the sidelines of the visit, the Prince of Wales met a number of refugee families of different nationalities, in addition to representatives of the local community, who have benefited from the center's services.

Since 2015, with the support of UNHCR, the Community Support Committees have successfully reached 36,000 Syrian and non-Syrian beneficiaries in East Amman alone. JOHUD’s ‘One Refugee-focused approach’ has been rolled out throughout the Kingdom, and committees that are open to all nationalities have reached over 80,000 refugees and Jordanians in over 20 different locations.
