Goodwill Family Relief Fund helps 800 families during Ramadan and announces launch of second phase
The Goodwill Family Relief Fund, launched by the Jordanian Hashemite Fund for Human Development (JOHUD), has provided support to 4,000 vulnerable individuals from 800 families across Jordan since its launch in April during the holy month of Ramadan.
Families were provided with financial assistance through prepaid cards, enabling them to buy essential supplies for Ramadan and Eid Al Fitr. JOHUD also distributed more than 2,000 food packages to families through Its extensive network of community development centres.
Farah Daghistani, Executive Director of JOHUD, said “This Ramadan, we have been able to bring some relief to families across the Kingdom thanks to the generous support of our donors and partners. We are now moving on to the Goodwill Relief Fund’s second stage, where we will expand the nature of support to have a more lasting impact. Thank you to everyone who has donated so far. We hope we can count on your continued support, so please give if you can.”
JOHUD will facilitate medical interventions, including vital medical supplies and surgical operations for the medically uninsured, assistance in establishing home-based businesses and home maintenance for those living in dangerous accommodation.
JOHUD launched the Goodwill Family Relief Fund in April 2020 in response to the economic impact of the Covid-19 crisis and the repercussions facing some of the Kingdom’s poorest families, particularly those with no breadwinner or with handicapped individuals and children without a parent.
