Working to Minimize Social Issues

Refugee Families in Lebanon

 

More than three million Syrian refugees fled to Lebanon seeking shelter from the raging war in Syria. Due to the high number of refugees, neither the UN nor the numerous NGOs were able to meet the great need. The need is even greater when the families are made up of a husband, wife, and children numbering from six to ten. When they are made up of a husband and more than one wife, the number of children is usually from 11 to 22.

New Beginnings and Challenges

House of Ruth, Jordan

 

Our programs in the house are mostly on hold this month as we are doing maintenance work inside and outside of the center to prepare for the summer. We are fixing some areas around the center and expanding the space to have a children’s play area for activities, games, and sports.

The food project is ongoing, and its results are great! The families are happy to cook and host our guests, introducing them to their culture and country dishes. In addition, they are earning some income which helps them. Likewise, our guests, volunteers, and friends are enjoying the yummy food and new experiences with our refugee families.

Heaters Just in Time!

Refugees in Lebanon

 

Lebanon enjoys four seasons with autumn, spring, summer, and winter.  The Bekaa Valley is situated between the eastern and western Lebanese mountains. This winter, snow covered our mountains and the weather was very cold. Our valley became like a river flowing from the melting snow on the mountains surrounding the valley.

The clinic continues to see patients of all ages and with varying conditions. 150 patients were seen this past month and Dr Bara performed all needed examinations. He also referred some patients for additional testing when needed. The clinic is still the major provider of medications, supplying patients with about 85% of their needed medications.

Celebrating a Growing Herd

Goat Loan Program, Jordan

 

Our team visited Maliha and we spent such quality time with her.  She was very encouraged by our visit to her simple home. The houses in her village are not fancy and they are not big. They are made of cement, and usually they are just one or two rooms. They do not use couches but instead they use mattresses to sit on. That’s the Bedouin style.

Celebrating 22 Graduates!

Refugees in Lebanon

 

What a big joy to see 22 ladies from the Syrian refugee's camp graduating, after having attended with perseverance for one year. They walked every Wednesday for about one hour in different weather conditions, including the hot summer and the stormy winter, week after week, to be part of one of the many development programs that GHNI does.
