Expanding Business Practices

Goat Loan Programme, Jordan

 

Um Abdallah lives in Mufaradat Village and she had ten newborn sheep. She sold five of the new sheep and the rest belong to GHNI. Um Abdallah also bought two big sheep with the money she earned from selling the newborns. This will help to increase the productivity of milk and butter. She is also doing well with her dove project and she has gone from having 20 doves to 50. We are there for her and give her the support she needs.

Making the Most of the Moments

Vocational Training Programme, Jordan

 

*Rifat is an Iraqi young man and is 17 years old. Rifat and his family have been in Jordan since 2015. He and his family fled from their hometown, Bartila Village, because of the death threats made by violent groups in the area. They did not have anywhere to go. Everything was taken away from them, including their house, their money, their belongings, their friends, their memories, their village . . . everything!

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.

Spreading the Wealth to Other Families

Goat Loan Program, Jordan

 

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.

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.
