AMMONNEWS - The Japanese government said it will provide a new aid package of about $15.6 million from its supplementary budget of the 2019 fiscal year to help the Kingdom, which faces a regional challenge as it hosts a large number of refugees.

Under the package, grants will go to international organisations working in the Kingdom, including the UN Development Program, UNICEF, the International Organization for Migration, the World Food Program, the United Nations Relief and Works Agency for Palestine Refugees (UNRWA), and others, the Japanese Embassy in Amman said in a press release.

It said the grants will help implement projects to provide humanitarian aid to Syrian refugees, assist host communities and improve the economic situation in Jordan.

It said that Japan, as a member of the international community, will continue to offer strong support to Jordan, which is the cornerstone of stability in the Middle East region.
