SCM has been on a mission for 8 years now to make sure that Syria’s displaced children, their mothers, and other vulnerable populations feel a strong sense of hope, relief, and stability through the incredible work and outreach of SCM and its volunteers. SCM Medical Missions grew from a small grassroots operation, organizing rapid response medical missions in Jordan and Greece, then we started working full time in Jordan to distribute goods to the displaced population of Syrians in camps. To fulfill that need, we have been sending out roughly 6 or more 40 ft containers per year.
Our distributions and volunteers in Jordan are run by our regional manager Basel Sawalha and Rebecca Malikian. They are in charge of distribution and Rebecca’s young group of Jordanian and Palestinian students and professionals go out every week to different areas across Jordan to find the Syrian and the needy to distribute all the items that you so generously donate to us.
The container program costs about $5000 per container. But with your help so far we have been able to keep it going. We have a great driver that has given us a discounted rate on shipping, but once we get that we have the unloading and re-loading once it gets to the port of Aqaba and the workers need to be paid that help with this. It is very easy for each of you to help with this. You can make a monthly pledge of any amount towards the shipping. We can then concentrate on filling the containers with all the items that are needed and getting the containers out and on their way to Jordan.
Together, with your help of a donation of $25, $50, $100 or more we can keep spreading the love and compassion we have for these people.
Thank you for all you are doing!
