Do Not Forget

I did not sleep well last night, as usual. I keep thinking of the Syrian people and everything that needs to be done to help them, and I just can’t grasp what the world community is thinking.

We need massive support from the international community and also our own communities. We need to work on projects for education, health and the water infrastructure.

We need the countries in the region and around the world to keep their doors open to Syrian Refugees. We need open door policies and global responsibility. We need support, massive support – we need countries that had made UN pledges to make those pledges. We need people like ourselves to make pledges to help the Syrian people.

Do not give up- this is not something that one group of people or country can do alone. We will not be able to stop this humanitarian crisis that is taking place in front of our eyes if people don’t join together to make it stop. Social media is bringing this into our homes.

Please do not ignore it, we need help. The Syrian people need help- they should not be forgotten.

Please give whatever you can go to any web site and give everyone has something extra even $5 will help one child. You can donate now by clicking on the button at the top right of this screen, or mail a check to our office made out to SCM.

Thank you.

All proceeds go to the Syrian refugees. There will be two great speakers that have been on medical missions with SCM:

Rhenda Meiser, a humanitarian who was on the last mission

May Mardini, a physical therapist who was with us on previous missions and worked with the young men at the Spinal Cord Injury Clinic.

Hear their first hand experiences in dealing the the displaced Syrians in Jordan, plus many other speakers. Information about the situation in Jordan and Syria will be shared, and how you can continue to help. If you are interested in joining a medical mission with SCM, definitely go to hear  from Rhenda and May.

Graduation Day at the Malki-SCM Children’s Center

“Graduation of our first class 🙂
You should see the videos of the moms talking to us after the kids left thanking us for everything, saying how their lives have changed, how the kids want to study now and think of a future whereas before they didn’t think they had a future.

And how one girl used to always talk of hate – she even hated water – and always yelled at her mom – now she says please and I’m sorry – and her mom attributes that not only to her daughter attending the center, but also because she’s seeing Dr. Shafik and has learned how to deal with her daughter’s anger.

Next week we are starting group sessions for the moms. And then the next step is group therapy for teens – right now the teachers are getting trained on how to lead group sessions by conducting them among themselves.

Saturday we are taking the two groups on a field trip to King’s. Rami arranged it – their school bus will pick up the kids from the center and the King’s students will have a program for them. I will be there.”
