Jewelry making supplies donated and sent to Jordan have been distributed to the refugee women who are involved in the jewelry making project. The jewelry that they will make with these supplies is sold and all proceeds go back to them. We have some of the jewelry in our office and you can see in our various Facebook posts what there is. If you need some unique gifts for the holidays and want to support a good cause, give us a call or stop by the office to pick up some of their creations.

SCM recently received a grant from the 2019 Crane Fund for Widows & Children. We want to thank Crane Aerospace & Electronics and all their employees that contribute to the fund. We received $4000 that we will use for our Women’s Empowerment and Skills Training programs for Syrian Refugees.
SCM was represented at the luncheon by Linda Richmond – thank you Linda!
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!
Once again SCM is teaming up with Because International to provide shoes to refugee children in Jordan. These amazing shoes are inexpensive, durable, and best of all, adjustable. They can accommodate a growing child’s foot for a lot longer than regular shoes, reducing the need to constantly find new shoes for growing feet. And most exciting is the new design that adds durability and a better fit!
Because International is matching your donations 1 to 1. For every $20, 2 children will receive a pair of new shoes that will protect their feet. SCM will get the shoes to Jordan and onto the feet of the children who need them most. Please help support this campaign, any donation helps!
