For more than 50 years, CNEWA has been a health care force in Jordan, collaborating with women religious to provide health care to the poorest of the poor. For decades, CNEWA supported the Franciscan Missionaries of the Divine Motherhood, whose mobile health care clinics treated sickly infants, toddlers and their mothers in the many refugee camps and impoverished villages of the kingdom. CNEWA later opened mother and child clinics in the densely populated towns of Marka and Zerqa with the Franciscan Missionaries.
CNEWA continues its support for those healing the poor.
Partners include the Comboni and Rosary sisters, the Dominican Sisters of St. Catherine of Siena and the Dominican Sisters of the Presentation of Mary. In addition to the provision of regular subsidies to the Italian Hospitals in Amman and Kerak to cover medical costs and acquire critical equipment, CNEWA subsidizes the Mother of Mercy Clinic in Zerqa.
