Sharing Favourite Cultural Foods

Vocational Training Programme, Jordan

 

We are still working with Rana, the lady from Syria, in our Vocational Training Programme. We have ordered 50 pickle jars recently to distribute to the refugees during the home visits. It’s a win-win situation because Rana will generate income and the refugees we visit will enjoy her yummy pickles.

 

Also, we ordered some Armenian pickles and sausage from Jerayer.

Clinic

 

Dr Fadi has seen about 156 patients, most of them were Jordanian from Ma’ain village, as well as a mix of Syrian and Iraqi patients. Lately, the number of patients has increased, and most of the conditions were general. Only a few patients had chronic diseases like high blood pressure or diabetes mellitus.

Besides providing the needed medication and treatments, we also handed out winter packages and clothing to the Syrian patients we have received in our mobile clinic this month. The patients were so happy and thankful.

 

Spreading the Wealth to Other Families

Al-Mufrdat Village

 

Um Abdallah has a new idea to improve the project and her income. She suggested replacing sixteen goats with twenty-six sheep, as they are better than goats in producing milk. Sheep's milk is also more expensive and that will make a good income for her when she sells the milk.

Syrian Refugees in Jordan

 

We handed out blankets to the Syrian refugees who came to the new clinic, as well as some packs of rice and lentils. The patients had no idea that they would be receiving anything. They went there to get medical treatment, but after everyone was done being checked by the doctor, we started to call their names (as in their UNHCR papers) and gave each family two blankets and food packets.

 

Preparing for Winter

Goat Loan Program, Jordan

 

In December, the goat-hosting families are preparing for the winter and covering the goats’ houses to protect them from the rain and the cold weather. Meanwhile, they also will take the goats to have their vaccinations.

Spreading the Wealth to Other Families

Goat Loan Program, Jordan

 

This month, Um Salem has a newborn baby goat. The family was so happy, and they are excited to receive more babies from the ten pregnant goats. The family’s income is getting better. We are going to expand the Goat Loan Program by giving some of the newborn goats to another family and start this project with them.
