Always There to Help

Refugees in Jordan

 

Families Adopting Families 

 

During this month we met with 25 individuals, including a mix of Palestinian, Iraqi, and Syrian refugees. The meeting was in an area near to where this group of refugees lives.
 

We are continuing to share our Transformational Community Development (TCD) Health Education module with the different people and groups we are serving. I talked about the importance of being careful about self-hygiene, applying the needed requirements when outside homes and around people, like wearing face masks and gloves, and always washing hands and using hand sanitiser.

 

Iraqi Refugees

 

Telenaz* is an Iraqi woman who escaped from Qaraqosh Village in Nineveh Valley with her family to Jordan in search of safety and hoping to immigrate to Australia to unite with her son and grandchildren. During her time in Jordan, Telenaz learned a lot of things and was filled with knowledge. Telenaz was thankful for this meeting and said that GHNI never forgot her and was always there to help.

 

Syrian Refugees

 

Um Abbud* is one of the women who attended the meeting. She shared and confirmed the importance of paying attention to the prevention instructions. She also said her family was infected with coronavirus in Syria as they did not heed the prevention instructions. After this meeting, we received feedback from a few families; they're very thankful, they were very encouraged, and the message still echoes in their hearts.

 

Yemeni Refugees

 

We are following up with Abia*, a young Yemeni woman. She is married and pregnant, and is so excited to become a mother.

Abia shared how GHNI influenced her life and helped her in various ways. We became like a family, supporting, loving, and encouraging her, especially during this hard time with COVID-19.
 

She was happy and grateful for the support and practical help, which included food boxes, financial aid, and medicine, among other things.
 

Thank you,
