Jordan and Beyond
Tens of thousands of Christian, Yazadi, and other minority groups have fled Iraq due to warfare and persecution. Many have gone to Jordan and live in limbo in places such as Amman (the capital). They are unable to go to a United Nations refugee camp for fear of persecution in the camps as well.
Elias Nawawieh leads our efforts to provide assistance to refugee families in Amman. In partnership with a local church, we distribute winter supplies to families (jackets, blankets, other clothes) and food packets to new arrivals. In addition, we connect individuals to medical care in crisis situations.
Our newest efforts are to help refugees start small businesses so they can begin to provide for themselves as they go through the asylum process.
