With almost all of our focus on the tragedy of the refugees trying to get to Europe, and SCM’s efforts to help those that arrive in Greece, it would be easy to forget there are others in need in the region. But we haven’t forgotten. In Jordan we are continuing our distribution of humanitarian goods and supplies with the help of local organizations, churches, and mosques.
Recently we teamed with the National Association of Special Needs in Amman to distribute hygiene kits, toys, and some clothing to the people they are helping – children and adults with special needs from all over the region: they are Jordanian, Palestinian, Iraqi, and Syrian. We just wanted to let people know that even though we are focusing on Greece right now, we continue to provide aid in Jordan. We will have another container going to Jordan in a couple weeks that will be taking more supplies for the refugees in Jordan. Warm clothes and blankets, socks, hats, mittens, toys, baby supplies, and medical supplies.
