UNICEF Azraq Refugee Camp in Jordan gets help from Central Hotels COO


Continuing Central Hotels’ collaboration with UNICEF, Abdulla Al Abdulla, Chief Operating Officer (C.O.O.) of Central Hotels and member of UNICEF Gulf Area Office Leadership Circle of Champions for Children and Young People, recently joined the UNICEF delegation to Azraq Camp.

Azraq is home to 40,615 Syrian refugees out of which nearly 22 per cent are under 5 years old. Of the total, 60 per cent are children, including 240 unaccompanied or separated kids. UNICEF is working closely with the Ministry of Education to provide quality, inclusive education and safe learning environments for all children in Jordan. As a result, thousands of Syrian refugee children will have access to quality preschool education at Azraq refugee camp as part of UNICEF’s support to the Government of Jordan to achieve universalization of KG2 in Jordan by 2025.

Mr. Abdulla, stated, “We are committed to supporting UNICEF’s great cause to ‘Make a difference in a child’s life’.  The Azraq camp is an outstanding humanitarian initiative where UNICEF and various other organizations have been doing incredible work. The visit to the camp has given us a renewed sense of purpose. Children are our greatest asset and at Central Hotels we are determined more than ever give back to the community in every way we can.”

The Azraq camp management is co-ordinated by Syrian Refugee Affairs Directorate (SRAD) and UNHCR that works with several Governmental and humanitarian partners.
