What an amazing organization. They do so much for so little. I know every dollar I give them gets put to use. Their overhead is small, as is their donor base. They could always use more help for the important work they do. Iraqi refugees have been abandoned. This is a disgrace. This organization sets about to try to do some repair. And now with thier expansion into working with Syrian refugees, it is even more important. Amazing, life changing work for a few amazing folks!

I am a researcher on Iraqi refugees and have reviewed many NGOs and non-profits working with refugees. CRP is among the best I've ever seen. It is a refugee-driven charity that treats those it serves with dignity and respect and serves to help everyone in need. It is based in the community and receives tiny bits of funding from hundreds of people and in-kind and financial donations from those living in Jordan. Most importantly, it has developed programs for children, women, and men both to provide services to others and to receive services. Self-defense classes, free haircuts, dominos night, reading group, in addition to food vouchers and used clothing and goods for the more needy. It functions such that refugees help refugees (those who teach the classes are Iraqi refugees) and don't just receive handouts and remain victims.
