AMMAN — German support for Jordan to cope with the influx of Syrian refugees has exceeded 50 million euros (JD46 million), according to a statement issued by the German embassy on Wednesday.
“The funds are used for a wide range of measures with a number of implementing agencies,” the statement said.
The measures include supporting access to primary healthcare and providing food items and heating ovens for Syrian refugees.
“With 90 million euros for the whole region, Germany is the second biggest donor after the US in helping host countries, Syrian refugees and internally displaced persons in Syria,” the statement said.
Although architect Labib Abdelmalek enjoys learning any new language, German is especially important to him — it means the future.
Seven years after its establishment, the German Jordanian University (GJU) is looking to become financially independent soon and upgrade its admission criteria, according to GJU President Labib Al Khadra.
A specially equipped German military aircraft picked up more than 30 severely injured Syrian refugees from Amman on Monday to fly them to Germany for treatment, according to the German embassy and Agence France-Presse.
