Caritas Jordan’s charity activities extend throughout Ramadan

By Munir Bayouk-en.abouna.org

Members of staff of the Caritas Jordan headed to Ajloun Governorate on Tuesday, June 12, in continuation of its campaign titled, “Ramadan is Different in the Jordan of Goodness”. During the campaign, a total of 150 food parcels were distributed at Arjan Charity Community in the presence of Lower House of Parliament Member Wasfi Haddad.

The distribution of aid in Ajloun has been part of a large-scale campaign conducted during the holy month of Ramadan that covers all of Jordan’s governorates in order to give aid to the poor families during this month.

Over the past years, Caritas Jordan has been conducting “the Winter Campaign” which is designed to help the poor and the needy families beat inclement and harsh weather conditions. This campaign which was conducted under the title of “Love and Mercy” provided urgently needed aid to families who were received thousands of foods parcels, blankets, and heaters.

Furthermore, the Restaurant of Mercy, launched by Caritas Jordan in cooperation with the Latin Vicariate in Amman on December 23, 2015 in Jabal Luweibdeh, Amman, has been opening its doors throughout the Month of Ramadan at iftar time to serve food for those who break their fast.

The Restaurant of Mercy became a reality as it followed Pope Francis’ announcement of the Jubilee Year of Mercy on December 8, 2015 to be a year that puts forgiveness before judgment. This restaurant is a reflection of the charitable activities of the Catholic Church where Caritas' institutionalized goodness reflects spiritual purity and national affiliation. It is a demonstration of Jordan's unity and cohesion in the confrontation of evil.

It is to be noted that Caritas Jordan won the 2014 Caritas Award in Lucerne. This is really a source of pride which confirms its high-standard performance by providing services to the homeless and needy people at all times particularly at times of war.
“Caritas” is a German word which means love. Thus, the message of Caritas worldwide is to disseminate love in the form of giving a helping hand to the needy at times of distress, which includes food and shelter among others.

Caritas Jordan has all the time worked tirelessly to fulfill its love message to the poor and needy by the good work of groups and individuals offering medical and humanitarian services. Its message is stipulated in serving and developing humans without distinctions in race, color, gender or religion. It has all the time been conveying invaluable service by assisting the poor and needy, providing primary medical services to mothers and children, assisting refugees and displaced in addition to victims of wars and disasters, working with governmental and voluntary corporations as well as with Caritas International members to achieve the desired goals.

The role played by Caritas Jordan during the past years has been pivotal and vital as it provided all kinds of humane services to Iraqi and Syrian refugees who lost all hope in life.

Caritas Jordan has always been a bright star in bleak and gloomy nights. Its services come at the rights time to reveal messages of affection, harmony and solidarity.
With the message of affection conveyed by Caritas worldwide and Caritas Jordan in particular, there is a glimmer of hope that the world will constantly look better day after day.
