JHCO said in a statement on Sunday that the project targeted 1,000 underprivileged Jordanian families, as well as Palestinian and Syrian refugees in the Kingdom.

The project, which lasted for two weeks, distributed parcels to beneficiaries in the capital Amman, and the governorates of Ajloun, Irbid, Jerash, Karak and Zarqa, which contained 19 basic foodstuff items.

Coordination has been made with social development offices, charities and the Department of Palestinian Affairs to reach the beneficiaries, the statement said.

Mahmoud Ismail, MATW CEO, said the food parcels project is an extension of JHCO's initiatives which aim at providing material and in-kind assistance to poor and needy families in various regions.

MATW provides various aid packages through charitable and seasonal projects, healthcare and orphan sponsorship programs, he said, adding that these JHCO campaigns and initiatives continue throughout the year.

Names of poor and needy families and orphans were selected within approved and accurate data, he noted.

JHCO Secretary-General Hussein Shibli said the organization welcomes new partnerships to raise needy households' living standards, hailing MATW's role for the donations, which reduce the economic burden on the beneficiaries.
