Length of contract: 3 months starting as soon as possible (renewable)
The context: Since the middle of 2013, the Jordanian borders have in effect been closed, which marked the start of a small number of asylum seekers starting to settle near the North Eastern border. From October 2015, displaced Syrians (mainly from Homs, Aleppo and Daraa) started amassing on the North Eastern Jordanian border seeking refuge in the country. Specifically, the displaced people have been settling on a small strip of land referred to as the Berm. To date, estimates indicate that more than 50,000 people live in harsh conditions with very little access to humanitarian assistance. This situation may be currently considered as one of the most acute crisis in the world.
