In the context of MedTOWN project, the Jordanian Hashemite Fund for Human Development (JOHUD) will co-produce services for people with disabilities through operating a Social Business Incubator hosted by the Ministry of Social Development, and advocating at the policy making level.

In April 2020, JOHUD launched the Goodwill Family Relief Fund in response to the economic impact of the COVID-19 crisis and the repercussions facing some of the country’s impoverished families, particularly those with no incomes, with members with disabilities or children without a parent.

Through its network of CDCs and its experience running the annual Goodwill Campaign which was launched in 1991 by HRH Princess Basma bint Talal, JOHUD has a proven ability to provide emergency support to those who need it most.

MedTOWN is a EU-funded initiative focused on the combined potential of agents of the social and solidarity economy (SSE), citizens and local authorities to co-produce the social policies that can fight poverty, inequality, social exclusion, and environmental unsustainability, providing them with tools and connections to build local resilience and foster the transition towards more fair, resilient and sustainable societies in the Euro-Mediterranean region.
