Amman- 22 July 2020

On Tuesday, July 21, 2020, the President of the German Jordanian University (GJU), Prof. Manar Fayyad welcomed The Executive Director of Al Hussein Society Ms. Annie Abu Hanna to discuss ways of partnerships that can be achieved in cooperation with the University for Non-profit Organization specializing in the field of physical disabilities.

Fayyad discussed with the guest the University’s programs, the training offered by the consultation and training center (CTC), Edu-Syria project, and the German Year.

On the other hand, Hanna introduced the Society’s mission and services, addressing the impotence of raising community awareness in cooperation with public and private institutions.

It is worth to mention that the Society was established in 1971 when it began its services aiding government-run orphanages. Once involved in a volunteer program, it became aware of the need to address the lack of services for those with physical challenges. Over the years, it evolved into the leading organization in Jordan that provides rehabilitation and educational services to persons with physical challenges.
