“We have so many inquiries, how can we help?” says Pastor Hanna Massad. “It has been quite overwhelming, the number of people who want to help and understand more about what these families have gone through and suffered. It is amazing to see how we relate to each other and especially our brothers and sisters in Christ, and when we bring visitors from overseas it is encouraging to these families.”
According to the WFP (World Food Program), food insecurity among refugees in Jordan has doubled in the last year; one-quarter of the refugees are already food insecure with a further two in three refugees on the edge of food insecurity. But while CMG’s food coupons are a lifeline for more than 600 refugees in Jordan, recently these families will receive no other food assistance from July due to a shortage of funds. (Some receive food assistance from the WFP).
