Ammon News - The Government of Japan donated over $2 million to UNICEF to support recovery efforts for children in Jordan during the COVID-19 pandemic.

In a statement on Tuesday, the UNICEF said that the funding will support the agency's work with the Jordanian government to aid socio-economic recovery efforts to protect children and youth from the worst impacts of the pandemic – as well as supporting a climate resilient future for the country through the provision of equitable water, sanitation and hygiene (WASH) services, as reported by Petra.

"In this difficult time, socio-economic impacts on vulnerable communities are a great concern in Jordan. We sincerely hope that our support through UNICEF will contribute to mitigating such negative impacts and increasing resilience of vulnerable people to respond to various challenges related to COVID-19," said Japanese Ambassador Shimazaki Kaoru.

"We appreciate the important role of UNICEF as a precious partner for implementing activities of our projects especially in the WASH, Social Protection, Child Protection and Youth sectors," he added.

Tanya Chapuisat, Representative of UNICEF Jordan, said: "We are extremely grateful to the Government of Japan for their continued commitment and support to the most vulnerable children and their families in all governorates of Jordan. Together, we can reimagine a better future for every child so they can grow up healthy, safe and protected."

The Government of Japan is a long and valued partner of UNICEF in Jordan and has provided over $40 million to UNICEF in Jordan since the beginning of the Syrian crisis to support the agency's work to strengthen national systems and provide lifesaving services for children.
