SIS Community Puts Food on Refugee's Tables in Amman, Jordan
Posted 09/28/2016 07:20AM

Since the seed of an idea about knitting hats for Refugees in the Zataari Camp in Jordan began in the summer of 2013, other related service learning projects have blossomed here at Shekou International School. Heartwarming efforts to contribute positively to the lives of refugees living in basic conditions in Amman, began to spring up across SIS campuses, last year. Grade 2 at Parkside raised 4,000 rmb via their Market Days in June, while the ES STUCO gathered almost 6,000 rmb with their Dodgeball games. Meantime, a small group of 6th Grade students at Bayside, raised just over 3,000 rmb with their Flea Market sales - to which one parent donated all of her own takings.


This week, the ground roots CRP organization used our funds (2,000USD) to distribute food vouchers to 76 families in Amman. These vouchers helped to feed 183 adults and 330 children. The Director of CRP, Amanda Lane wrote on Sunday, "I'm writing with great gratitude to you and everyone at Shekou International School who contributed to helping the many refugee families we serve. On Monday, August 1, your funds went toward distributing food vouchers to 76 families at our community center. Food security is critical for our community members, and these vouchers helped to feed 183 adults and 330 children for an entire month! Our monthly food voucher program ensures that families in our community can continue to put food on the table. SIS' $2000 contribution was approximately 60% of the total funds used for the food voucher distribution.


On behalf of the CRP community, we'd like to thank you for your commitment to this cause and your desire to provide much-needed assistance to refugees and victims of war and conflict here in Amman.
Thanks so much for all your hard work, Rosana, and for everyone's support!
