This past month, we distributed hundreds of food boxes and hygiene kits. We got kids singing and dancing and we hosted not one, not two, but three music events for students, families and community members! This month, for Ramadan, we're getting ready to pass out hundreds of food boxes for families in need.
Everything we do is possible because of YOUR donations -- and you are making a huge impact for so many Syrian refugees living in Jordan!
Read on to learn more about the activities you've been supporting!
#Mom2Mom Mother's Day Campaign
In early May, we asked you to contribute $10 each to purchase and distribute essential hygiene packages to Syrian moms for Mother's Day. You responded!
In less than a week, we raised over $3,000 to assemble 300+ bags that went directly into the hands of mothers who needed it most. This is really as direct as it gets!
2017 #SongsForSyrians Music Week
We believe in the power of music! Since we started the Songs for Syrians music program in June 2016, we've been teaching musical instruments and music composition to nearly 200 students! The efforts of the past year culminated in an incredible, intensive music week held in three schools for 250+ kids from May 14-20.
For 5 days, we learned new beats, composed original songs and performed skits! We are spreading hope through music and sharing cross-cultural traditions with our students. You can really see the light in our students' eyes when we give them the tools to express themselves through the arts. Stay tuned for a recap video of the 2017 #SongsForSyrians Music Week!
Ramadan Food Boxes
Ramadan Mubarek! The Muslim holy month of Ramadan started last week and families across the world will be fasting from sun up to sun down every day for 30 days. Ramadan is typically a joyful time of year to reflect and spend time with family and friends.
However, many refugee families in Jordan struggle daily to make ends meet. These food boxes will bring them both the nutrition they need and the dignity they deserve this holiday season. Food boxes cost $30 per box and include Iftar (evening break fast meal) and Suhoor (pre-dawn meal) items to last a family for two weeks!
Thank you for all that you do! We are making sure that every dollar that you donate has a direct impact on the families we serve. Whether that means handing out a food package to a family in need or employing a teacher to make sure 30 kids are learning every day, we are committed to making direct and meaningful contributions to better their lives.
