“Let us work together to replace despair with HOPE, fear with human SECURITY and humiliation with DIGNITY”

Jordan: Caritas Jordan contributes to efforts to combat Covid-19.

Caritas Jordan has provided JD10,000 to the Ministry of Health in support of the Jordanian government’s efforts to eliminate the Coronavirus pandemic.

Caritas Jordan Director Wael Suleiman said that Caritas Jordan shoulders its humane, moral and social responsibility towards the emergency health conditions that Jordan is going through. He pointed out that Caritas Jordan currently runs 12 medical centers in nine governorates across Jordan, and that it functions in coordination with the Ministry of Health and the Ministry of Social Development.

In a radio interview, he said that 120 specialists work in these medical centers which include doctors, nurses, and pharmacists. Indicating that Caritas Jordan will deliver prescribed medicines to those who are unable to leave their homes, he stressed that Caritas Jordan will continue to operate under these exceptional circumstances.


Caritas Jordan has all the time worked tirelessly to fulfill its love message to the poor and the needy through the good work of groups and individuals by offering medical and humanitarian services. Its message is stipulated in serving and developing humans without distinctions in race, color, gender or religion. It has all the time been conveying invaluable service by assisting the poor and needy, providing primary medical services to mothers and children, assisting refugees and displaced in addition to victims of wars and disasters, working with governmental and voluntary corporations as well as with Caritas International members to achieve the desired goals.

The role played by Caritas Jordan over the past years has been pivotal and vital as it provided all kinds of human services to needy Jordanians as well as to Iraqi and Syrian refugees who lost all hope in life.

What Caritas is doing it is not to be called assistance but right confirming humans’ legitimate rights of living.
