By Munir Bayouk-en.abouna.org

On Thursday, February 27, French Ambassador to Jordan Mrs. Vero Ful-me; Bishop Joseph Jbarah, archbishop of the Melkite Greek Catholic Archeparchy of Petra and Philadelphia; and Director of Caritas Jordan Mr. Wael Suleiman inaugurated "The House of Sisters " in Karak.

During the inauguration ceremony, the French ambassador said: "In Karak and in Jordan in general, life is characterized by cooperation among the different communities and by their peaceful common living." She added, "This project will not only contribute to the integration of refugees but will also contribute to the economic and touristic development of the city."

This project, that received a funding of 250,000 euros by the Ministry of Europe and Foreign Affairs, provided for Iraqi refugees qualified in the field building the opportunity to restore an old house in Karak named, "The French Sisters House". The house, which enjoys heritage and tourism importance, serves as a site for a number of craft and porcelain workshops, as well as for thr manufacture of ornaments made of wood and copper, in addition to holding cooking workshop. The project has made it possible to hold crafts trainings that improved employment opportunities for refugees and for the youth living in the city.

This announcement to launch the project, which is designed to support victims of ethnic and religious violence in the Middle East, was made on September 8, 2015 during the Paris Conference which was co-sponsored by France and Jordan.
In concomitance with France's commitment to maintain the cultural and religious diversity in the Middle East, this project also shows France's ongoing support for Jordan in administering the Iraqi and Syrian refugee crisis.

Furthermore, the restoration of this house is part of the French Embassy's efforts to establish a twinship between the Jordanian city of Karak and the French city of Carcassonne, as both of them seek to include the Karak Castle on the UNESCO World Heritage List.

In attendance at the inauguration ceremony were Karak Governor Mr. Jamal Al-Fayez, Mayor of Karak Mr. Ibrahim Karaki, and Monsignor Mauro Lalli, charge d'affaires of the Apostolic Nunciature in Amman, in addition to priests and dignitaries of Karak.
