Caritas Jordan opens a new center in Jerash

By Munir Bayouk-en.abouna.org

Caritas Jordan inaugurated on Tuesday, August 20, a new center in Jerash Governorate under the patronage of Jerash Governor Ma'moun Lawzi and Archbishop of the Melkite Greek Catholic Archeparchy of Petra and Philadelphia Joseph Jbara.

In attendance were Caritas Director Wael Suleiman, Jerash Greek Catholic parish priest Fr. Sami Qandah, Greek Orthodox parish priest Jiries Smeirat, Mayor of Jerash Ali Qoqazah, parishioners, Caritas members of staff, and a large number of people.

In a welcoming address, Fr. Sami Qandah expressed his happiness for the opening of the centre and thanked Caritas Jordan, donors, the government of Canada and Caritas Canada for their outstanding and unstinting support for humanitarian projects undertaken in Jerash Governorate.
For his part, Jerash Governor Ma'moun Lawzi lauded the opening of the centre in its capacity as one of the several humanitarian initiatives and Caritas centers in Jordan, operating under the Hashemite leadership that provides humanitarian services to needy people without discrimination.

Archbishop Joseph elucidated the important role played by the centre with regards to supporting all those in need. He also thanked Jerash Municipality and the families of the region who support socio-humanitarian initiatives.
For his part, Mr. Wael Suleiman stressed Caritas Jordan's commitment to serving the needy people through its centers in the Kingdom as this commitment is a duty and a message for the service of humanity in our beloved homeland.

Later, humanitarian aid was doled out to a number of needy families which included schoolbags, stationery, and health kits.

It is worthy to note that a new Caritas Jordan center will be opened in Irbid in September to help continue to provide aid to the various areas in Jordan.

CARITAS MESSAGE IMPLIES SERVING AND DEVELOPING HUMANS

Caritas Jordan has all the time been a bright star in a gloomy night as it strove 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 complements the message of the Church by expressing love through different tangible means. It has always been a bright star in bleak and gloomy nights. Its services come at the rights time to reveal Jesus' message of love. With Lord Jesus’ message of love conveyed by Caritas worldwide, and expressed by Caritas Jordan in particular, there is a glimmer of hope that the world will constantly look better day after day.
