21 Augustus 2021 – the first school packages are handed out

With the first donations of our action ‘School starts again’ (Steunactie ‘De scholen beginnen binnenkort weer, ook in Jordanië’) we have filled about 30 school bags These have been handed out now. So, there are some proud children that will start school this year with a brand new school bag full of school goodies.
We hope to be able to fill some more school bags soon because there are many more children who need school supplies to start the new school year.

Eid al-Fitr

11 May 2021 – 120 children can shop for new clothes in honor of Eid al-Fitr

Because there were some funds left at the end of Ramadan, we have given out 120 ‘shopping vouchers of 10 Dinar each to children from the poorest families. With these vouchers, they could go shipping for a new outfit in a few cooperating clothing stores. This made Eid al-Fitr for these children extra special this year.

Special thanks to Mukhtar Abu Mahfouz, who negotiated a discount with the shop owners.

Request from SOS Children’s Village Aqaba

5 May 2021 – At the request of SOS Children’s Village Aqaba some meals have been given to families under their care

During the last week of Ramadan, we received a request from SOS Children’s Village Aqaba for Iftar meals for families that are under the care of this organization. After talking to Mukhtar Abu Mahfouz we decided to accommodate this request, even though we are a very small organization compared to this worldwide organization.

In the meantime, the group of volunteers that is helping with the logistics has grown tremendously. We are very happy that this action was successful.

The volunteers take a well-deserved break.

1.000 Iftar meals during Ramadan

26 april 2021 – Thanks to Green Religion B.V.: 1000 Iftar meals for Ramadan

Thanks to a nice donation from Green Religion B.V. we will prepare and distribute a thousand Iftar-meals for Ramanan. 

A 100 Iftar meals are prepared daily, under the watchful eye of Mukhtar Abu Mahfouz. 

The meals are distributed by Red Crescent volunteers and volunteers from the local Aqaba Police Force. The logistics of this operation are difficult because everything has to be done during the day. There is still a curfew because of Corona in Jordan. And the temperatures in Jordan are already rising considerably, which makes the Ramadan regime extra tough for the volunteers.

We are grateful to the Mukhtar and all the volunteers that are working hard to make this possible.
