One of the most vital topics on the agendas of countries and donor agencies for any development and social programme is sustainable development. How significant are these programmes in achieving sustainable development in extremely poor areas? And will they eradicate or end hunger?

In Jordan, like any other country in the world, we have areas that have been classified as extremely poor. As a result, in 2013, Tkiyet Um Ali (TUA) launched its Eradicating Extreme Poverty Project, in a bid to reach out to the extremely poor households across the Kingdom.

At the end of 2014, we successfully endorsed 18,300 families, providing them with their daily requirements via the Sustainable Food Programmes.

Extreme poverty is a crucial pillar that directly impacts the future and development of any society. The results from the field visits we carried out across Jordan show that 45,850 children, from the families endorsed by Tkiyet Um Ali, are suffering from extreme poverty.

This is a vital issue, and these children are the future of our country. If they are not given food as a basic necessity, they will not be able to play their respective roles within our societies. Sadly, we will not succeed in eradicating hunger if we simply do not acknowledge that it exists. This is a problem the world faces, even for those who do not suffer from hunger.

Thankfully, in Jordan, we are not tackling the issue of famine, and have succeeded in positioning ourselves as a model in development and social solidarity. At Tkiyet Um Ali, we continue to deliver donations to the thousands of families suffering from severe health issues and social conditions as well as those who are unable to secure their daily intake of bread. By offering our food support, which is a very basic requirement, we believe that we give these families the opportunity to preserve their dignity.

None of this would have been possible without the support of our donors, be it the individuals, corporations, or governmental and non-governmental organizations who, like us, believe in a cause that is a major concern on regional and international levels. As we move forward, we aim to serve these families with Food for Life in the best possible way we can.
