Habibi Valtiberina Association (HVA) is a local NGO registered at the Jordan Ministry of Social Development since January 2019, as an international branch of an Italian Association born in 2014.

HVA was born with the aim of supporting the most disadvantaged communities in Jordan, with a specific focus on those affected by forced displacement.   In particular, HVA implements activities that promote social and cultural solidarity, eradication of poverty and reduction of disparities. Its mission is people-centered and focuses on the recognition and respect of everyone’s human rights.

For the past three years, HVA has been implementing projects that cater to the needs of the vulnerable Iraqi asylum seekers who have fled the persecution of ISIS and are now in Jordan. Overall HVA supports  a total of 130 direct beneficiaries, and has helped improve the condition of life of over 500 families.

During the past three years, with the support of Mar Yousef Pastoral Center, and the drive of Father Mario Cornioli, HVA has created a vast and extensive network of local and international partners that allowed the NGO and its activities to become a reference point for the many different communities in Amman. Having Father Mario and his staff working on the ground, managing and coordinating the activities is an assurance for all the partners and donors which have decided to support the implemented projects
