This donation stems from PepsiCo, Inc. and JICE’s continued commitment to support communities struggling with food insecurity. As part of this initiative, JICE provided 60,000 Aquafina water bottles as in-kind donations in addition to 60,000 cans of soft drinks.

This initiative which is based on PepsiCo’s global strategy and JICE’s social impact arm reflects how keen both parties are on playing an active role that has a positive impact on varied segments of society with a focus on those that are most disadvantaged.

Both parties are also eager to expand their impact of building more sustainable food systems that would support the largest possible number of people in need. Through this initiative, Tkiyet Um Ali can continue its work without interruption despite the challenging economic climate and is able to achieve its goals by providing sustainable food aid to program beneficiaries across the Kingdom.



This initiative, which launched in Ramadan 2021 and will stay in effect until year-end, came as an extension of the strategic support JICE provides its established partner Tkiyet Um Ali with for several years now. 

PepsiCo, Inc. constantly strives to achieve impact-driven and positive sustainable results and has entrusted Tkiyet Um Ali with securing and distributing 3,630 food parcels through this initiative.

Tkiyet Um Ali’s Director-General Samer Balkar, expressed gratitude and appreciation for PepsiCo’s donation saying: “I thank PepsiCo for their generous donation for the second consecutive year which I do believe is a testimony for the role that Tkiyet Um Ali plays in alleviating hunger across the Kingdom and its vision of reaching a hunger-free Jordan.”

“I am confident that with such donations, we can continue to support the neediest families in Jordan and help them lead better lives,” he concluded.
