Queen Mathilde of the Belgians has spent several days in Jordan to learn more about the humanitarian effort to help refugees. Mathilde was there to get a fuller idea of how those fleeing Syria are being helped and how Belgian support is aiding that.

Mathilde also got the chance to meet Syrian families who are being helped to build new lives in Jordan and heard about the support they get to integrate into their new communities.
Queen Mathilde caught up with old friend, Queen Rania, as her visit got into full swing. As the Belgian visit came to an end, the two queens headed to the Jordan River Foundation showroom which provides employment opportunities for women and produces traditional textiles and crafts.
