Among the major goals of this fieldwork is the possibility of hosting orphaned or unaccompanied children and families of great social vulnerability.
Our reception of refugees and humanitarian aid program has two pillars: by FPMRAH, we are investing in projects that aim to receive refugees in our country and in achieving development projects in urban fields and places where refugees live here in Jordan. The other fundamental aspect of our project is the participation of Brazilian civil society by both the host and the investment in places where refugees live in a state of calamity ", pointed out Dr. Uziel Santana.
"We will spare no efforts and political actions for the Brazilian Government work towards hosting orphans because of the war," said the president of FPMRAH, Congressman Leonardo Quintão.
The Brazilian team comes back very motivated and committed to the catastrophic situation in which the refugees live in Zaatari and other Middle Eastern locations.
"In the coming weeks, together with UNHCR-Brazil and UNHCR-Jordan, we will try to discuss how Brazil can effectively help in this matter. We are well advanced with regard to the record of this hearing and the possible positive consequences that this may cause to our country. " pointed out Dr. Jonas Moreno, Director of ANAJURE Refugees and Humanitarian Aid.
Back to Brazil, as first administrative measure of FPMRAH, the ANAJURE Refugees will hold in Brasilia, on June 16th, the 1st Inter-institutional seminar for Refugees and Humanitarian Aid, with the participation of UNHCR Brazil, Foreign Ministry and Red Cross.
