A European Bank for Reconstruction and Development short documentary.

The documentary follows the stories of Syrian refugees who have settled in Jordan and hears from the Jordanians who have supported them since their arrival .

Forced to flee from fighting in Syria, more than one million refugees have now made their homes in Jordan and have started to build their lives across the country.

In this short documentary we follow the stories of resilience told by Jordanians and Syrians who have been helped by the EBRD and internationally funded projects.

The expansion of Amman’s main landfill Ghabawi, the Abdali Mall’s training in the hospitality sector, the investment in MicroFund for Women (MfW), have all had a positive impact on people’s lives and provided hope to individuals who strive for a better future.

The EBRD’s refugee response in Jordan has been supported by: the European Union, the Republic of KoreaTaipei China, the United Kingdom, EBRD’s Southern and Eastern Mediterranean Multi Donor Account (Australia, Finland, France, Germany, Italy, the Netherlands, Norway, Sweden, Taipei China and the United Kingdom).
