CARITAS JORDAN PROVIDES SERVICES ALL THE TIME
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.
