The UK Monday pledged £9 million for the National Aid Fund (NAF) social protection programme "Takaful 3," as British support for the programme since the start of the pandemic totals £34 million.

In a meeting with the British envoy in Amman, Ayman Mifleh, the social development minister, praised the UK for its support for NAF's emergency programme.

For her part, British ambassador Bridget Brind commended NAF for its "vital" role in supporting families that have been hit hard by the economic ramifications of the COVID-19 pandemic.

Brind emphasised the UK is committed to supporting Jordan to buttress its social protection system that would contribute to cushioning the blow of the COVID-19 pandemic on vulnerable groups.

Barq Dmour, NAF's acting director-general, briefed the ambassador about the services of NAF, highlighting the Fund's strategy is to introduce medium- and long-term social protection programmes that would tackle the social and economic fallout of the pandemic.
