Office of Her Majesty – Press Department – Washington, D.C.) Her Majesty Queen Rania Al Abdullah underlined the importance of supporting Syrian refugees living in Jordan and other host countries in the Middle East, describing them as “the best hope for rebuilding their broken land.”

The Queen said the refugees have experienced unimaginable hardship, leaving behind everything they had “to choose peace instead of war.”

She made these remarks at a screening of the new documentary ‘Salam Neighbor’ at Georgetown University in Washington DC on Thursday.

The film follows award-winning filmmakers Zach Ingrasci and Chris Temple while they lived among refugees for one month in Zaatari camp, the second largest refugee camp in the world, after Dadaab Camp in eastern Kenya.

Queen Rania calls for more sustainable support to countries hosting refugees at World Bank meeting
April 15, 2016
(Office of Her Majesty – Press Department – Washington, D.C.) Her Majesty Queen Rania Al Abdullah pressed an audience of high-ranking officials and representatives of grass roots organizations on the urgent need for a more sustainable humanitarian response to the global refugee crisis.

She made these statements in Washington, DC on Friday in a speech she delivered at the World Bank Group Session on Forced Displacement, in the presence of His Royal Highness Crown Prince Al Hussein Bin Abdullah.

Also speaking at the session were Secretary-General of the United Nations Ban Ki-Moon, President of the World Bank Group Dr Jim Yong Kim, and President of the European Commission Jean-Claude Juncker.

Queen Rania, who comes from a region that has been at the center of ongoing civil wars causing the worst humanitarian crisis since World War II, identified the unfortunate title the Middle East has earned itself as “the world’s largest producer and host of forced displacement.”
