May 23, 2022
As part of its long-standing support to the social protection sector, the EuropeanUnion (EU), together with the Ministry of Social Development (MoSD), inaugurated the Jerash Care Centre for Rehabilitation of Persons with Disabilities.
The event marked a key milestone in the implementation of the EU-funded “Support to Social Protection in Jordan” programme, worth 23.65 million euros, which aims to support social protection reforms and the development of a more equitable and inclusive society in Jordan.
The Jerash Centre is the largest of all social care centres in Jordan. Through this rehabilitation, 200 residents will benefit from modern facilities that were renovated to become more accessible and secure. The programme sets out to upgrade the infrastructure of 100 care centres and MoSD field directorate offices across Jordan as well as supporting Jordan’s National De-Institutionalisation Strategy.
