In Jordan there are approximately 630,000 displaced Syrian Refugees. Convoy for Care partners with Alliance Church in Mafraq to welcome them. These Refugees have fled their native country for a plethora of reasons, ranging from bombings to starvation. Through regular home visits, we get a glimpse into a conflict and circumstances that few can fathom. Many survive with only the clothes on their back, and their needs are numerous. Our fundraising focus is to provide diapers and baby formula to families with little ones.
In Amman, there are approximately 200,000 displaced Iraqi Christian Refugees. Many of these Iraqis can trace their Christian heritage back to the time of the original Gentile Church. Through regional leadership, we have developed a relationship with this community in Jordan.
There are approximately 25,000 displaced Sudanese Refugees living in Amman. Their war-torn homeland has left its people scattered across some of the harshest terrain on the planet. With Arabic as their native language, these migrant people find a natural home as the lower class in an opulent westernized city.
The Palestinian Refugees from the Wars of 1948 and 1967 have had a tumultuous time trying to assimilate to their relocated reality. Impoverished and poorly treated, many Palestinians face a conflict of identity. C4C is building relationships within this community to support the development of educational opportunities.
Amman Language School
There are approximately 420 million people who speak Arabic. As such, it is incumbent upon us to recognize the necessity for proper Arabic language training. Our participation in language courses at an Arabic school in Amman will allow us to better build relationships with the Arab population and initiate change.
