PRESS RELEASE – Oxfam in Jordan, a leading humanitarian organization, has initiated the 'NO MORE Campaign' to raise awareness and call for renewed solidarity and firm commitments from the international community to uphold the rights of people affected by the protracted refugee crisis in Jordan.اضافة اعلان

The campaign highlights the pressing consequences of diminishing humanitarian funding, which is having severe repercussions for Syrian refugees and vulnerable communities in Jordan. The campaign emphasizes how funding cuts across multiple sectors, including agriculture and food security, education, health, livelihoods and economic recovery, protection Shelter and settlements, water, sanitation, and hygiene (WASH), Disaster risk reduction and climate change adaptation, governance and peacebuilding, and solid waste management (SWM), are impacting refugees and vulnerable Jordanians in critical ways.

As the crisis persists and funding decreases, refugees are slipping further into poverty and debt, facing a looming humanitarian crisis. Reduced incomes and rising prices are making it increasingly difficult for refugees to meet their basic needs. Oxfam is calling on donors to increase their humanitarian contributions to mitigate this crisis and aid refugees and vulnerable Jordanians in securing their basic necessities.

Oxfam is working to promote the pledge on Meaningful Refugee Participation, led by the Global Refugee-Led Network (GRN), as well as contributing to the pledge on localization. We're also working with the GRN to advocate for the mainstreaming of refugee participation across all pledges.

The NO MORE Campaign is a critical initiative that underscores the need for coordinated and sustained humanitarian funding to address the complex and multi-faceted challenges faced by refugees and vulnerable communities in Jordan. The campaign utilizes an evidence-based approach, supported by factual evidence that highlights the potential impacts on the refugees and the host community.

The NO MORE Campaign is strategically aligned with the Global Refugee Forum (GRF), scheduled for December 13-15, 2023, in Geneva, co-convened by Colombia, France, Japan, Jordan, Niger, and Uganda. This campaign is set to commence on November 26, 2023, and extend throughout and beyond the GRF event.
