Families Finding Strength from Within

Clinic Update

Our new clinic welcomed 44 Syrian patients last month. We were able to encourage them as well as offer medical treatments and some physical help. One day a lady was wondering if she was pregnant. She was concerned because their life is difficult here in Jordan and they will not be able to provide for a new-born baby. We encouraged her to have hope and know that a child is a gift.

 

Families Adopting Families

*Elishat is from Baghdad and is living with her elderly parents and brother. In 2005, she was working with an organization in Iraq, claiming women’s rights. She left Baghdad in 2006 due to a threat she received because of her job and her beliefs. She wasn’t wearing a head cover (the hijab) and she was driving a car, which was not acceptable for women in Baghdad at the time

She went to Syria and stayed there until 2007 when she returned to Iraq. Her parents were sick, and they needed someone to take care of them. Her brother also needed help because he has epilepsy. When she returned to Baghdad, she had to go to the Ministry of Immigration and Expatriates to complete some papers. One of her employers refused to give her an approval because he had asked her to marry him temporarily and she didn’t accept his offer. She then received new threats and had to leave Iraq again. Her parents were afraid and very concerned but Elishat decided to leave Iraq and come to Jordan. Since she arrived in Jordan, she has prepared everything for herself. She also provides everything for her family who is now with her in Jordan. They have been in Jordan for 11 years, and Elishat and her family are registered at the United Nations. They want to go to any safe country, but nothing has happened yet.

Elishat is a very strong woman and has a big heart. She serves and takes care of her elderly sick parents as well as her brother. GHNI has visited her and enjoyed the time spent with her. She is powerful and full of joy. She shared with the team how she gets her strength from within, and she was so thankful for our visit because she felt that she is not forgotten, and that we care about her and her family.

 

*For the purpose of safety and wellbeing, “Habil” and “Elishat” are pseudonyms for individuals being helped by this project.
