A grant contract was signed by Shimazaki Kaoru, ambassador of Japan to Jordan and Husein Fayez Husein Abu Dubai, President of Al Farouq Society for Orphans Care, at a ceremony held at the embassy of Japan in Amman on Wednesday.

This grant assistance aims to enhance the quality of medical services provided at the Al Farouq Society’s clinic in Irbid Palestinian refugee camp, through the provision of a new X-ray machine, ultrasound equipment and blood analyzer. The society was established in 1991 as an NGO in Jordan, and since then, it has provided medical services to Palestinian refugees and other underprivileged people in Irbid at an affordable price, as well as educational and financial support for fatherless children and families. With the new medical equipment provided by the Japanese grant, the clinic will be able to provide more accurate and immediate diagnosis and discover a wide range of diseases.

Under the Grant Assistance for Grass-Roots Human Security Projects, Japan has extended more than $10 million for 151 projects to non-governmental organizations, schools, hospitals, and local governments in Jordan since 1993.
