Syrian refugees support operation in Jordan / IFRC Amman

Since the beginning of the unrest in Syria at the start of 2011, Jordan has received over 600,000 Syrians fleeing the conflict and many more are coming daily. Though Jordan has left its borders, officially, open to Syrians and has a favorable protection climate but influx of the refugees is low at the moment.

IFRC had launched a preliminary appeal to support National Societies in Lebanon, Iraq and Jordan in their assistance to Syrian refugees. The regional appeal has now been revised with scaled up activities of the operations. In case of Jordan, the revised appeal intends to help around 124,000 people (both Syrian refugees and some poor local Jordanians) with various relief items, cash, livelihood support and medical services that require more human and financial resources, hence this position has been created to support the effective implementation of the cash transfer program which is one of the major components of the current emergency appeal.

Database & IT Support Officer will report to the Cash Delegate and work closely with the project officer and assistants.
