Bringing Hope to New Families

Yemeni Refugees in Jordan

 

During the last three months, Yemen was afflicted by increasing tensions that seriously compromised progress in a range of political and human rights areas. Tensions began to grow in June and July 2014, when an armed offensive was launched in Amran by members of the popular committees who were affiliated with a hostile movement. Those clashes reportedly resulted in at least 204 casualties and the displacement of tens of thousands of people in June and July 2014 alone.

In Al-Khaledia Village, we visited Um Ahmad, who runs a goat-hosting family. During this visit, we noticed how much closer we’ve become to her and her family. You can tell that she was more comfortable, relaxed, and relieved around us. She was more open than on our previous visit.

Last month, GHNI had the privilege of decreasing the suffering in one of thousands of camps in Lebanon. We helped them by providing a pump to empty flooded sewage wells to prevent the release of smelly air, toxins and diseases.

Churning for Income

Goat Loan Program, Jordan

 

We have a significant development in the village of Al- Khalidiya! Um Ahmed has used the milk that she got from the goats and she bought a machine to help her produce cheese, milk, and butter. Now she takes her productions and sells to her neighbors, giving her a source of income for her and her family. She is very proud and thankful for this project.
