On the Human Development Index of nations, Kenya is rated at 143 out of 185 countries, putting it in the lower third of all countries. Over 50% of Kenyans live in “absolute poverty” (defined as living on less than $1 USD a day).
Cambodia is a relatively new location where Jordan International Aid (JIA) has started work. This nation of nearly fifteen million is located on the Indochina Peninsula in southeast Asia.
We’ve been around since 2005 when we were incorporated as a not-for-profit organization and since that time we’ve engaged with meeting human need in Nicaragua, Haiti, Japan, Cambodia, Kenya, Tanzania, Mexico, India and even in the United States after hurricane’s Katrina (New Orleans) and Sandy (northeastern United States).
JIA is committed to and has teams of people and some level of funding that we maintain to be ready on a moment’s notice to respond to disasters around the world. If you would like to be considered as a possible resource to respond to this type of emergency, click here to send us an email.
