Celebrating New Births

Goat Loan Program, Jordan

 

This month we celebrated the hosting families in Mufaradat Village who have eight new kids, four of which were twins. Winter is colder in the north than it is in the capital because it is desert all around. The hosting family is getting ready to protect the goats because they hope to increase their numbers. They are thinking of better ways to achieve that, like putting up a big umbrella to protect the goats from the rain.

 

Sharing Gifts and Abilities

Vocational Training Program, Jordan

 

This month we are excited to announce that we have extended the sewing program for our recent graduates! We have given each lady a sewing machine so she can apply what she has learned from the course and previous training. The extension will help the ladies improve their skills and put what they have learned into practice. This will open new doors of work for them which will help them generate some income. Practice makes perfect!

The Joy of Learning

Children’s Program

The month was such a blessed month. We had many visitors who helped our Ma’ain team by interacting with the patients, ladies and children. They also encouraged the patients on their progress. We all played with the children, did face painting, gave out toys and distributed clothes. What a good time!
