Goats - A Source of Income

Goat Loan Programme, Jordan

 

In AM village, Omar* visited Zaid*. Zaid is a young man who has lost his job during the COVID-19 crisis. The village committee has introduced him to us. Recently, Zaid received six goats from GHNI Jordan. 

 

Zaid is very happy to start this project as it will be his only source to generate income. He is excited to increase the number of goats to increase the production which will give an increased income.

 

Thank you,

Open Heart Surgery Saves a Child's Life

Refugees in Jordan

 

Iraqi Refugees

Sami* is from Basra, Iraq. He worked as an office man in an engineer's office. He is married and has two daughters and one son who has Down’s Syndrome. Sami had to leave Iraq because of one of his daughters who was 11 years old and in the 5th grade was threatened. One of her classmates accused her of insulting their teacher. It was sad and scary to see the hatred demonstrated at this young age.

Despite Challenges, Garden Provides!

Holy Land Garden

 

This update can start to sound a bit like a “broken record.” Several recurring factors have impacted the future direction of our project. Due to ongoing challenges related to COVID-19, we find ourselves limited in the scope and size of the Holy Land Garden project. We are contending with the heat of summer, less water, and other hot weather-related factors which diminish agricultural production.

An Opportunity in Workclothes

Smyrna Women's Empowerment Centre, Turkey

 

A crisis is always an opportunity. Last month, an issue that arose among the women was a great teachable moment for us. As we were solving problems, we saw that our relationships have gotten stronger.

Move Creates Challenges and Opportunities

Holy Land Garden

 

April through June has been a time of transition. The need to relocate has created big changes to the project. With the move, there has also been a change to the type of help that is being offered to those who are in need. The host country has had a lot of difficulties recently with the increase of displaced and homeless people. Trying to help those impacted by unforeseen events is a big part of the project’s new emphasis.
