DIRECTOR OF OPERATIONS
Kotaiba is a Syrian humanitarian who came to Jordan in 2013 with nothing. The laws prohibiting refugees from getting jobs made life extremely difficult, but he survived and flourished. Even in the most desperate time he still cared about helping others; he volunteered in Zaatari camp with the organisation Dar al Yasmin, and when it stopped operations he decided to start his own charity. With the support of his wife and friends from all over the world he organises Acting for Change International's various projects from his Amman home.
At RUP, Kotaiba is in charge of all operations within the Middle East. His knowledge of both Jordan and Syria provides us with great opportunities for expansions, and his work ethic and can-do spirit is truly inspirational. We are proud to have him on our team.
