Hundreds of thousands of Syrian refugee families are falling short of receiving any support. Some of them were shocked to have the support suddenly cut off, and thus the suffering is increasing. Refugees are found on streets searching for food in garbage containers.

Providing Basic Necessities to Those in Desperate Need

Refugees in Jordan

Families Adopting Families

 

One Iraqi family recently arrived in Jordan with only 4 JOD (about $5). They are from Mosul. The father, *Shiraj, his wife and three children came since they were no longer able to survive in Kurdistan. They hoped for help from the UN, hearing about other families who have been sent to several countries.  

 

The Clinic is Open!

House of Ruth, Jordan

We have officially opened the clinic in the House of Ruth this month! The doctor has received quite a few appointments. He opens the clinic once a week. We aim for the clinic to be known and trusted among the villagers. Once we accomplish this, the clinic will open twice a week—maybe even three times a week.

Helping without Prejudice

Vocational Training Program, Jordan

This past quarter, we helped the son of the Sheikh, who is a friend of our GHNI-Jordan office. The Sheikh helps in consulting us in many important issues. He fully supports us, and loves what we do and how we operate our work. His son, Sultan, who studies in the faculty of the international Islamic sciences, needed to take the summer semester, but he couldn’t afford it.

Baby Goats Promise Growth

Goat Loan Program, Jordan

In the Dafyaneh the goats are doing great. Five new baby goats have been born and more are expected to be on the way. Our shepherd, Muhammad, likes this project, as he is taking good care of them and cleaning the fold. He is working hard to provide food for the goats, and he has collected enough for the winter. Muhammad and I have shared good times talking about important life issues every time we meet. Recently, we talked about life and death, and where does life come from.
