Visiting Netherlands delegation briefed on Church social services

By Munir Bayouk-en.abouna.org

At the conclusion of the visit of the delegation of the Educational Activities in Eastern Europe of the Staatkundig Gereformeerde Partij (The Reformed Political Party) in the Netherlands--that co-organized the conference titled, “Look to the Future Together”-- to Jordan, the delegation paid visits to various sites in Jordan to get acquainted with the various social services provided by the Church.

The delegation, accompanied by Director of the Catholic Center for Studies and Media in Jordan Fr. Dr. Rif’at Bader, visited Caritas Jordan offices in downtown Amman and was familiarized with the services provided to the forcibly displaced Syrians and Iraqis.

Then the delegation visited the Latin Patriarchate-affiliated Our Lady of Peace Center and was briefed by its director Sahm Mdanat on the projects administered by Caritas Jordan, especially the Garden of Mercy where a number of Jordanians and displaced refugees work.

The following leg of visit included a visit to the Latin Patriarchate School in Na'our where the delegation was welcomed by Fr. Simon Hijazeen and school director Arwa Makhamreh. The delegation was briefed on the school activities.

Later, the delegation visited Madaba and met with the American University of Madaba (AUM) President Dr. Nabil Ayoub who presented a briefing on the AUM future plans. The delegation then visited the ground mosaic tableau named, “Jordan Biblical Map” located in front of the Greek Melkite Catholic Church in Madaba. Mr. Laith Salayta presented a briefing indicating that this map is an initiative in the project “Improving the Coping Strategies of Displaced Iraqis in Jordan and the Vulnerable Jordanians’ in Madaba”, a project which started in 2017 and was funded by the French Ministry of Foreign Affairs for the sum of 250,000 euros. The initiative, which involved intensive work, was intended to design the first Biblical map of Jordan as a mosaic floor surrounding the Greek Catholic Church in Madaba city.

The delegation ended the tour by visiting the Sacred Heart of Jesus Church in Na'our and Our Lady of Lourdes Grotto and thanked the Lord Jesus Christ for the success of the conference organized by the Catholic Center for studies and Media in Jordan which enjoyed wide media coverage.
