We serve refugee and asylum families from Syria, Iraq, and Sudan. These families are at-risk and below-poverty category.
Restoring Faith, Inc. builds long-term empowering relationships among families with the goal of sustaining their hope for improved conditions.
Refugee Response: Jordan.
Jordan hosts about three million refugees who escaped wars in the Middle East and North African countries. The refugee population constitutes approximately 36% of the Jordanian population, placing considerable strain on socio-economic foundations and systems already strained prior to the surge in refugee arrivals. The refugee population comprises minority groups, the disabled, individuals with special needs, the elderly, women, and girls who face exposure to exploitation. In addition, the emergence of the COVID‑19 pandemic has complicated and exacerbated the already worsened living conditions for these refugee communities.
Restoring Faith, Inc. provides life-saving assistance with in-kind food distribution, food vouchers, and cash support. We target the most vulnerable refugee households with no alternative means for survival or any alternative coping mechanisms left. Restoring Faith supports refugees living in urban, rural, mobile, and camp-like situations.
Because refugees do not have social welfare, food banks, soup kitchens, or consistent relief aid, we strive to meet hunger needs by distributing basic food supplies or food vouchers.
There is an overall nutritional deficiency as we have assessed among our refugee families. Most have members that suffer
from illness or disease including PTSD. We provide vitamins, dietary supplements and basic hygiene supplies to families. For those with serious medical conditions, we help with the purchase of medication.
The housing situation for refugee families is generally below the poverty level. Every house has very poor insulation and lacks central heating. During the winter months it gets very cold.
We provide them with supplies such as blankets and area-heaters to help these families keep warm. In extreme circumstances, we evaluate the need for further assistance.
