AMMAN — A total of JD93.5 million has been committed to Himmat Watan Fund, a national fund launched on March 31 to combat the COVID-19 outbreak in the Kingdom.

According to the deputy chairman of the committee assigned to oversee the fund, Jamal Sarayrah, JD27 million of the total has been channelled to the National Aid Fund, JD1 million to Tkiyet Um Ali and another JD1 million to the Jordan Hashemite Charity Organisation. 

He added that the distribution of assistance is being “robustly monitored”, while more than 250,000 households have benefitted from the aid.

Sarayrah, former deputy prime minister and current chairman of the Jordan Phosphate Company, said that the global accounting firm EY has been hired to audit the accounts of the fund and report to the committee accordingly.

The fund continues to receive contributions through its Central Bank of Jordan account No. 1/3400/400.
