4th Sewing Center Opens

SCM has been able to open a 4th Sewing Center in Jordan where Syrian refugees can learn a new skill and then work with that new skill to earn an income. Thanks to all the support from our many donors, people shopping on our Amazon Wish List and sending us sewing machines, and our team in Jordan, we were able to make this happen.

Volunteer Experience in Jordan

Recently, two SCM supporters from Seattle – David Anderson and Tim Devine – volunteered their time in Jordan to help with distributions and work in our warehouse. They also carried suitcases of supplies with them, some items they had collected, some we gave to them to take with them. They had also collected funds that were donated by their churches. SCM thanks David and Tim for taking the time during their sabbatical travels to bring relief to the Syrian refugees in Jordan. They were kind enough to write up a report of their experiences and share it with and gave permission to us to share with everyone. We hope you enjoy reading the linked report below as much as we did.

Sewing Centers in Jordan

As just a reminder that what you donate to us here at our office in Seattle really does make it’s way to Jordan and to help the refugees there, we found this photo of the big sewing machine as it was being loaded into the container to be shipped to Jordan. That is the same table that you see being unloaded from the truck in a post we put up just before New Year’s Eve. We also found some more photos of the sewing machines people had purchased on Amazon and had delivered to our office. These are also being put to use in the first sewing center we sponsored at Zaatari.

Thank you for all your support! We will have another container going to Jordan soon!

Baby Carrier Distribution

SCM partnered with International Rescue Committee (IRC) and Carry the Future to distribute baby carriers shipped to Jordan by SCM. IRC had staff trained to fit mothers with the carriers and ensure they could use the carriers to safely carry their babies. The carriers are so helpful particularly since strollers are not very abundant.

SCM wants to thank both organizations – IRC and Carry the Future – for collecting and distributing the carriers, and SCM is pleased we could help facilitate the project.

Sewing Centers in Jordan

We just received photos of a new sewing center being set up near Zaatari. This is one of the projects for self-reliance that SCM is sponsoring with your help. It’s part of the skills training provided to refugee women to learn a new skill that will enable them to earn money for their families. Now they have a new place to run their business out of.

There is still time to donate for 2017, and help programs like the skills training programs continue into 2018. Your generous donations are turned into aid for the refugees in Jordan, Lebanon, and here in Washington State. We have also sent aid to Puerto Rico, and will do so again in 2018. Your donations go a long way with SCM. We are able to move quickly and target where the aid goes and get the people what they actually need in a timely manner. Donate now before tomorrow’s deadline, and help our programs get a jump on 2018.

We wish you and your families a happy and prosperous New Year, and we also hope for a better year for the millions of displaced Syrians who still need our help.

Backpack Distribution in Jordan

SCM distribution at a school in Ghour Fife in southern Jordan on September 24, 2017 with some of our volunteers. The backpacks are from our partner Operation Refugee Child (ORC) who sent the backpacks with school supplies in the container that recently arrived at our warehouse in Madaba.

Without the work of organizations working together we would not be able to help all these people. Thank you Gader-Ibrahim of ORC.
