WEEK OF COMPASSION – A FOCUS ON DIGNITY AND RESPECT FOR REFUGEES IN JORDAN
July 25, 2017
On the northern border of Jordan, near Syria, there is a small school where children attend classes on geography, anatomy, art and more. Like any school, the walls are lined with colorful drawings and the space is filled with child-sized furniture. Yet, this is not just any school. It is temporary, housed in a small tent, and tasked with educating children who have spent the majority of their lives as refugees.
The school, constructed by the Orthodox Initiative (OI) with major and ongoing support from the Week of Compassion, is located in one of the five major informal refugee settlements which are scattered across northern Jordan.
Your gifts to Week of Compassion send a message far and wide: where suffering occurs, Christ is present through the generous acts of those who are inspired by his life and word.
