IFAW Honorary Board member, Founder The Princess Alia Foundation, Jordan

"IFAW’s animal welfare principles and successful hands-on work in diverse communities align perfectly with the Princess Alia Foundation’s motto ‘Compassion and Respect Towards All Creation."

HRH Princess Alia Al Hussein, the daughter of the late King Hussein of Jordan and Sharifa Dina bint ‘Abdu’l-Hamid, is the founder of the Princess Alia Foundation, a non-governmental organization that “works to promote the balance, harmony and respect for all creation.” Having witnessed from an early age the serious deterioration in how animals and the environment are perceived and treated, as values change and focus is directed towards making money, and how negatively this trend impacts the welfare of our fellow humans and Humanity itself, she established the foundation with the goal of addressing all these issues holistically. The Foundation works with rehabilitation of native wildlife, as well as providing solutions for creatures confiscated from illegal wildlife traders and inadequate zoos, as well as humane and sustainable solutions for stray animal control. It also works with the youth and education and therapy through interaction with equines for people on the autistic spectrum and others with emotional and behavioural problems. Read more about HRH Princess Alia on the Princess Alia Foundation website.
