The Japanese government has donated $92,000 for the purchase of medical equipment for the health clinic of the leading Jordanian textile union. Located in Irbid, the clinic, which is due to open in January, will provide medical and dental services for some 15,000 textile workers. The staff, who will be hired locally, includes a number of specialists. The agreement, which was signed last month, is part of the Japanese grant aid for grassroots projects. The grant has already provided some $3.8 million to both governmental and non-governmental projects in Jordan.
