Your support this quarter has helped us provide many needy families in Jordan with basic necessities.
Our distribution partner in Jordan reports:
We have delivered food coupons to refugee families and talk about an on-time God!
To protect Jordan’s fragile economy, refugees (Iraqi) are forbidden to work, leaving heads of households without the means to provide basic necessities for their families. Some of the families try to find work (under the table) but due to the COVID-19 pandemic, work is very often not available. We provide these families with quarterly food coupons. The coupons are redeemable at designated markets, and the amount given is based on the size of the family.
One of our leaders, Amir, delivered food coupons to a couple who were on the brink of desperation. “When the couple opened the door and I handed them the food coupon, the woman started to cry,” Amir said. “Yesterday everything we had was gone, we have no food, nothing left. And here you are this morning, relief came just in time,” the lady said tearfully.
Jordan is currently under curfew. The authorities announced that a full lock-down would be implemented in certain areas following a rise in the number of COVID-19 cases. The curfew imposes problems and creates an even greater need for refugee families.
Thank you for your continued prayers. We send our sincere appreciation and heartfelt thanks for your support of our mission. We are blessed to have you stand with us in prayer. Not only us, but your brothers and sisters in Christ thank you from the bottom of their heart.
