The task of determining beneficiary families in need of help is assigned to the social protection team, headed by Minister of Social Development, Basma Ishaqat, and comprising of the Jordan Hashemite Charity Organization, Tkiyet Um Ali and Jordan Red Crescent, in coordination with the administrative ruler. This process aims to maintain efficiency by ensuring that parcels are delivered to people that need them the most and organize support received from different organizations and initiatives.
