About Collateral Repair Project (CRP):
Collateral Repair Project (CRP) was started in 2006 by two American women who saw a need for a direct connection between citizens of coalition countries and innocent Iraqis who suffered from the consequences of war. They set up a Collateral Repair Project in Amman, Jordan, where many refugees were relocating during the height of the second Gulf war in Iraq. Much of CRP’s early work was charity-related, but as the organization grew it ran numerous programs focusing on community-building, education, and trauma relief in addition to emergency aid. Activities have greatly expanded over the years. As a result of the war in Syria, CRP started serving Syrian refugees. CRP now serves Jordanians as well as other nationals fleeing violence in their home countries, such as Sudanese, Somali, and Yemeni refugees, as well as assisting Iraqis and Syrians.
