Family Assistance – January 2012

The following was accomplished this month:

– 1,900 meals served

– 76 food packages distributed

– 380 items of clothing given out

– 2 houses repaired

– 50 school items distributed

We were also able to provide needy families with 31 blankets and 20 kerosene coupons to help them keep warm in this particularly cold winter weather, and arranged for 8 families to get support from a participating company.

We helped little Qusai, a lovely cheerful boy with spina bifida who lives near Jerash, to get an appointment at the Al Hussein Center for the Physically Handicapped in Amman to get fitted for a new set of leg braces.

Photos were taken in Mubes, Mesherfeh (Mafraq) and the Madaba area during our distributions, showing some of the dire living conditions we come across, as well as happy recipients of coupons, blankets and clothes. Also pictured is little Qusai during his medical appointment.

Thank you to Montessori School, Al Nabil for Trade and Investment, Bulbultex Co and individual donors and volunteers for all their precious assistance.
