Her Royal Highness Queen Rania of Jordan celebrated her 52nd birthday today. As Her Majesty continues to lead from the front and reign over hearts for her compassion and courage of conviction, we share five philanthropic acts endorsed by her that merit attention.

Royal Health Awareness Society

Queen Rania launched the Royal Health Awareness Society in 2005 to develop and implement public health and safety programmes in Jordan.

The Children’s Museum Jordan

Her Majesty launched The Children’s Museum Jordan in 2007, a non-profit educational institution that aims at creating an inclusive learning space for children to engage from across the country.

The Jordan River Foundation

Queen Rania supports The Jordan River Foundation, which is a non-governmental organisation established in 1995 with a focus on child safety and community empowerment.

Pictured here is her visit to the Bani Kinanah district to meet members of the Kufrsoum Agricultural Cooperative Association for Pomegranate Producers.


The Queen’s initiative, Madrasati, was launched in 2008 to support Jordan’s public schools in improving the physical and educational learning environment.

Madaba Women’s Charity Association

Her Majesty is actively involved with the Madaba Women’s Charity Association that was launched in 2011 to help underprivileged families, orphans and women.
