By Alucia Kojan, Field Manager for Restoring Refugees, July 2021.
The most challenging part of my job is witnessing humans suffering and hearing stories that break your heart. While we see unprecedented human suffering on television or read about them in the newspaper, it's hard and frustrating to see it with your own eyes as it unfolds before you day after day. Despite these challenges, I'm always looking for opportunities to make the refugees feel a part of our society by coordinating Restoring Faith relief efforts in Jordan, and taking time to pray with them.
During our routine field visits, it is increasingly alarming that the COVID pandemic has worsened the refugee situation. The COVID preventive mechanisms mean refugee families are forbidden to leave the house to seek coping mechanisms and can only depend on assistance for survival.
There is an immense appreciation toward the donors and supporters of Restoring Faith who understand that it is the duty and responsibility of all of us to share the burden of human pain. With their support, we have managed to supply many refugee life necessities, including food, water, shelter, and medical care needed to survive.
