Refugees in Lebanon

 

At the start of the year, there was a new lockdown in the country which led to the closure of our educational centre. The rest of the centre was receiving more refugees than could be accommodated.

Solving a Problem Together

Vocational Training Programme, Jordan

 

On Feb 2nd, we held Transformational Community Development (TCD) training for a number of women from the village using a Zoom meeting due to the existence of positive COVID-19 cases. Some women had some trouble connecting online, but with the help of our IT team member, it all worked out, and the rest of the training went smoothly.

The past week was very cold and snowing. It was a tough week for refugees. We received many calls from Iraqi refugee families who were asking for blankets and food boxes. Our team responded immediately to their calls and requests.

Activities Despite the Lockdown

Refugees in Lebanon

January was not an active month due to the lockdown in Lebanon. The situation is very bad. Twenty-one percent of the examinations are positive. On top of that, we had a strong snow storm. The camps were affected badly. Our medical and dental clinic are both still working.

Positive Feedback for the Computer Class

House of Ruth, Jordan

 

Computer Class

The students of this course are still completing their computer lessons and their progress is good. Therefore, the teacher was encouraged to give them some intensive lessons as he noticed that they have the ability to learn faster than others. The teacher prepared a questionnaire asking the students about the lesson and the teaching method. He wanted to know the positives and negatives to improve the way they are taught.
