More than half of the 3.3-million people displaced by Syria’s civil war are children. In Jordan alone, more than 300,000 children are starting new lives with limited access to education, health, and attention to their psychological well-being. The focus of international donors is on immediate and tangible needs such as shelter, food and basic health care. But the psychological harm can also have catastrophic consequences. A handful of organizations are doing what they can to keep an entire generation from being wasted. I visited with a few Syrian refugee children living in Amman to see how the Malki-Salaam Children’s Center have been able to help them recover from their trauma.

Thanks to Dr. Shafik and his colleagues for graciously opening the doors to me and allowing me to spend a day with him and the children.

GENEVA — Facing what it described as a severe cash shortfall, the United Nations food aid organization said on Monday that it had been forced to suspend a voucher program that was helping to feed 1.7 million Syrian refugees in neighboring countries.

The suspension by the organization, the World Food Program, was one of the most drastic cutbacks ever by an emergency relief provider in the nearly four-year-old Syrian crisis, raising the prospect of widespread hunger at the onset of winter.

The cutback in aid will affect refugees in Egypt, Iraq, Jordan, Lebanon and Turkey who receive voucher cards from the program, which work like debit cards so users can buy food in local shops. The same mechanism also provides an economic lifeline to communities struggling to cope with the influx of Syrian refugees that has swelled since the conflict began in 2011.

WHAT IS #GIVINGTUESDAY?

GT_2014Web-Banner_250x250_BlueAltWe have a day for giving thanks. We have two for getting deals. Now, we have #GivingTuesday, a global day dedicated to giving back. On Tuesday, December 2, 2014, charities, families, businesses, community centers, and students around the world will come together for one common purpose: to celebrate generosity and to give.

It’s a simple idea. Just find a way for your family, your community, your company or your organization to come together to give something more. Then tell everyone you can about how you are giving. Join us and be a part of a global celebration of a new tradition of generosity.

Please include Salaam Cultural Museum in your #GivingTuesday plans. You can contribute here by clicking the DONATE Button at the top right or left of the screen, or go to our Charity of Choice page to donate or pledge there: https://mycharityofchoice.com/payment/charity/9397?donation=gt

On Charity of Choice you can also sign up to be a fundraiser for Salaam Cultural Museum and start your own campaign to raise funds for our medical missions, children’s center, food drives, or for the general fund.
