Jordanian Ambassador to Japan, Lina Annab said Jordan has always provided a safe haven and refuge to many who are fleeing their homes in search of shelter and safety due to armed conflicts in their home countries as well as due to illegal occupation, expulsions and forced displacements. Today, Jordan is the largest refugee host per capita worldwide with most of the refugees coming from Palestine and Syria.

“Lest We Forget” is an attempt to shed light on the lives of innocent people who have been forced to flee the safety of their homes and countries. 

These refugees have not only been robbed of their most basic rights, but also, they have been brutally dehumanized and marginalized, the ambassador said.
