Islamic Relief: Distributing 63,300 Cans of Meat in Jordan

Relief this month is providing food supplies to nearly 2,650 families that are finding it harder than ever to meet their basic needs. Focussing on the most vulnerable families – such as female-headed households, families with orphaned children, as well as elderly and disabled people – we are offering the canned meat in Mafraq and Ramtha.

 

“Each household will receive 24 cans of meat,” said Ala’ Shanti, project manager for Islamic Relief Jordan.

 

“Canned meat has a much longer shelf-life than fresh meat, so we hope that these food supplies will supplement their diets for several weeks.”

 

Whilst the project mostly serves refugees fleeing deadly conflict in Syria, 30 per cent of beneficiaries are poor Jordanian families.
