Family Assistance – February 2012

STEPS volunteers continued to assist the community this month by providing food, clothes, toys and school accessories to those in need.

– The hard-working Family Kitchen team collected about 2,500 meals from excess food in 5-star hotels and distributed them directly to families in various areas.

– More than 100 food packages were prepared and delivered to those in need in Mubes (Al Balqa), Mesherfeh (Mafraq) and Mahatta.

– Fresh organic vegetables (55 kg) were given to a center in Khilda, as well as directly to families in Mahatta.

– Approximately 375 items of clothing reached needy children in the above-mentioned areas, as well as in Wahdat refugee camp.

– A kindergarten in Zarqa was equipped with educational toys. Other toys were distributed to individuals. And some 600 school kits (of notebook, pencil, pen, eraser, sharpener and scotch tape) were given to 1st graders in three schools in Baqa’a and Marka refugee camps.

THANK YOU to the many kind-hearted people and companies who support these activities, helping to make a positive difference in the lives of many.
