Caritas Jordan continues its humanitarian services during Ramadan

By Munir Bayouk/ en.abouna.org

Caritas Jordan, in collaboration with the management of the Jordanian Al-Amal Deaf Club, held an iftar banquet for the friends of the club and their families on Saturday, May 18. The iftar banquet was attended by club administrative staff including director of the club Imad Maghayrah, Munther Sadeq, Suha Snew and Salman Hijazeen.

Caritas Jordan has over the years been presenting humanitarian aid to the Jordanian poor and needy families as well the forcibly displaced Iraqis and Jordanians who took refuge in Jordan. With the Winter Campaign, Caritas Jordan has presented to hundreds of families in Jordan with blankets, health kits, stoves among others.

It has been striving to strengthen the resilience of people who barely have resources and struggle to survive. It distributes food and non-food items as well as winter aid to help beneficiaries overcome the harsh conditions of winter. The beneficiaries receive heaters, blankets, cooking gas, in-kind assistance and basic daily assistance in cash for rent and for work, as well as house maintenance, pest control, spraying and house sterilization.

Caritas Jordan’s long tradition of working on behalf of the poor and vulnerable commenced in 1967 when it responded to the humanitarian needs of Palestinian refugees fleeing their native country after the 1967 war.

Caritas Jordan has 22 centers spread across Jordan in order to serve people in the northern, southern and central regions of Jordan. Ideally, the centers include GP clinics, dental clinics, child-friendly spaces and rooms for training and capacity building. The centers receive all humanitarian cases and provide the necessary health, education, humanitarian, awareness-raising and counseling services.

Caritas Jordan collaborates with and receives support from members of the global Caritas network, namely Caritas Germany, Catholic Relief Services (CRS), Caritas Japan, CORDAID (Caritas Netherlands), Caritas Denmark and Caritas Canada, CORDAID (Caritas Netherlands), Caritas Denmark and Caritas Canada.

It has continued its humanitarian initiatives at the various Caritas centers in Jordan. On February 15, 2019 Caritas Jordan observed a free medical day marking the World day of the Sick which was held at Caritas Ajloun Center with the participation of a Caritas team, the Caritas Jerash Center, and the medical unit team. The services included public health and dentistry in addition to tests for diseases relevant to blood pressure and diabetes. This day also included presenting free medicine and free meals for the sick that numbered over 200 people comprising Jordanians and refugees.

The various Caritas health and awareness activities continued in various Caritas centers in Jordan to cover members of the local community and schools.

To further its activities, Caritas Jordan inaugurated a new center in Ajloun on January 19, 2019 to provide humanitarian services to the needy and the poor including the Iraqis and the Syrians who have settled in Ajloun Governorate.

Furthermore, Caritas Jordan has launched a project designed to hold several musical concerts titled, “Music Learning for Refugee children and Vulnerable Jordanians”.

The concerts took place at Terra Sancta College Theatre with the participation of a number of forcibly displaced Syrian and Iraqi children who fled to Jordan in addition to a number of Jordanian children. All the children underwent training for two years by musicians under the supervision of Maestro Tareq Al-Jundi.

The goal of this project was to provide vulnerable refugee, Jordanian children and their families with empowerment and to increase their sense of well-being and affiliation to their societies through music which promotes their educational capabilities and productivity as well as provides them with a sublime feeling of excellence. During the concerts, the children presented varieties of hymns for peace.

Among the recent Caritas' humanitarian activities has been doling out hot ifar meals to 200 orphans at the old Mosque of Jweidah, Qatarneh. The event was organized by "Your Project is Your Homeland Initiative" in cooperation with the Ministry of Awqaf and Islamic Affairs. After the iftar meal, founder of the initiative Mr. Akram Jarwan doled out gifts to orphan children.
Furthermore, as part of Caritas Jordan campaign for Ramadan this year titled, “Ramadan is Different in Generous Jordan”, employees and volunteers of Caritas Jordan in Mafraq doled out on May 14 over 110 health kits to needy families in Al-Hallabat region.

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.
