From a young age, Joud Ahmad, 21, suffered from mental and physical abuse from her father and brother. When she escaped home, she had nowhere to stay and was later put in administrative detention in the Juwaida Jail in the outskirts of Amman. Her case was then referred to the Jordanian Women’s Union (JWU), which transferred her to one of their shelters. The space is supported by UN Women through the European Union Regional Trust Fund in Response to the Syrian crisis, the EU Madad Fund.
