AMMAN — The Goodwill Campaign, implemented by the Jordanian Hashemite Fund for Human Development (JOHUD), on Tuesday offered several scholarships to university students in Hittin camp in Zarqa Governorate, according to a JOHUD statement.

Goodwill also provided support to a number of women in the area to help them establish their own “home-based business start-ups”, and distributed food parcels to 800 families in the camp. 

The aid reflects the campaign’s efforts in enhancing the living conditions of underprivileged families across the Kingdom and in helping them establish income-generating projects, in addition to helping the youth to pursue higher education degrees.

During the distributions conducted at the Palestinian camp, HRH Princess Basma, president of the Goodwill Campaign's higher committee, stressed the campaign's keenness on providing help and support to families through its various programmes, which contribute to fostering social and human development.

Princess Basma also visited the headquarter of a women’s association named "Kanz Hasanat", where she was briefed on the initiatives conducted by these women which aim to improve the social and developmental situation of the camp. 

For his part, president of the services committee at Hittin camp, Saleh Husni Abdulaziz, displayed the objectives of the committee and the services it provides to the families in the camp.

Princess Basma commended Goodwill's partnerships with the various national institutions, which empower the campaign to achieve its "humanitarian and noble mission" and contribute to instilling the values of social solidarity among society members.

She also praised the efforts of the campaign's higher committee and their role in achieving its goals.
