Establishment

The Jordan Hashemite Charity Organization for Relief & Development (JHCO) was established in 1990 as a multi-functional relief and humanitarian foundation. JHCO now provides direct humanitarian aid to affected countries during and/or after conflict and natural disasters. Since its establishment, and under Royal guidance, JHCO has managed to provide aid to people in need in more than 34 countries around the world.

JHCO is a non-governmental, non-profit organization registered with the Ministry of Social Development of Jordan with the mandate to coordinate humanitarian response efforts, manage funds from national and international donors and establish appropriate logistical support for transporting humanitarian aid to affected areas all over the world.

JHCO assists people all over the world who are suffering from the consequences of conflict, natural disasters, poverty and under development regardless of their religion, origin or creed. JHCO has a vision to further improve its partnerships and to work in coordination with local, regional and international organizations with the aim of delivering assistance more effectively. Accordingly, JHCO is making great strides towards becoming an international humanitarian organization in addition to providing regular support to those in need in the Middle East and North Africa.

With the onset of the Syrian Crisis JHCO has turned its focus inwards and has contributed substantially to the early relief efforts to serve Syrian refugees. JHCO continues to function as a coordinating force for international aid organizations operating in Jordan as the liaison with the Jordanian government.
