The Children’s Museum Jordan (CMJ) is back!

We are thrilled that our partner CMJ has opened its doors after months of operating virtually due to COVID-19 related government restrictions to keep all citizens and residents safe. Be sure to check out the museum’s latest exhibits, including a manual weaving exhibit by Architect Ruba Assi.

Cooking up a new batch of Aqaba Seasons!

The World Travel and Tourism Council (WTTC) has awarded Jordan the “Safe Travels Stamp” thanks to Jordan’s health safety protocols. As locals and expatriates residing in Jordan continue to flock to the Kingdom’s hotspots for leisure and adventure, we are eagerly preparing for the next edition of Aqaba Seasons (check out to read our last edition of the quarterly newsletter).

Prioritising health

MedLabs Consultancy Group, an internationally accredited network of medical laboratories in the region, signed a partnership agreement with THE Group, the retail company in Jordan that owns Cozmo, Cozmo Home and Readers, and is also the operator of BHS, M&Co and Hamleys.

The partnership agreement was signed by Dr Hassib Sahyoun, CEO of MedLabs Consultancy Group and Imad Bukhari, Chief Executive Officer of THE Group, during a signing ceremony at MedLabs’ head offices in Jabal Amman.

THE Group customers, both regular and gold loyalty cardholders, will benefit from special test offers that will be available at MedLabs’ 46 branches across the Kingdom. MedLabs will also hold free medical days at THE Group’s outlets for employees to raise awareness on various health issues.
