During the winter months, ICMC carries out humanitarian support activities in Irbid, a town in norther Jordan densely populated with Syrian refugees and vulnerable Jordanian households. By conducting home visits in the region, the ICMC staff is able to reach individuals with limited mobility or with special concerns who may otherwise be unable to approach an organization to request assistance.
Families and individuals who are forced to flee their homes due to conflicts, human rights violations, and natural disasters often struggle to meet their basic needs, suffer acute deprivations and are exposed to significant risks.
ICMC provides vulnerable families and individuals with essential humanitarian assistance and support, by distributing non-food items, providing rent assistance, facilitating access to health care services, and distributing medical devices. ICMC’s programs are carefully designed to meet both the emergency and longer-term needs of these individuals. ICMC makes sure that its support is effective and adapted to suit the particular needs of its beneficiaries. The effectiveness and sustainability of ICMC’s programs are ensured through a combination of outreach programs led by the local community, awareness-raising campaigns, referral systems, and accessible networks of service providers.
