Alalusi Foundation is pleased to announce support for the children and widows at HOMS League Abroad in Jordan. There are approximately 28 widows and 70 children that live at the center. There many orphans that live there as well. Each of the refugee children and mothers come with their own traumatic stories and grief. We would like everyone to join us on this journey as we begin to provide support for the children and widows.
Rooms Of Resilience
Alalusi Foundation is taking a different approach to healing Syrian refugee children and orphans by creating children’s activity rooms for the children. These children want to become doctors, engineers, teachers, and one boy wants to become a Sheikh. We are not just building activity rooms, we are building futures.

Homs League Abroad
Alalusi Foundation has partnered with Homs League Abroad (HLA) in providing shelter for orphans and their mothers. HLA has six residential centers in Jordan, Lebanon, and Turkey. In total, this project supports 750 Syrian refugee widows and orphans. The centers provide food, shelter, healthcare, rehabilitation and learning opportunities to widows and orphans. Due to the lack of funding, some of the centers are scheduled to close in the coming few months.
Without these centers, most of the Syrian refugee widows and orphans are left on the streets. HLA is in urgent need of financial support. It costs $150 per month to sponsor a widow or orphan. Sponsorship includes shelter, food, medical, rehabilitation training, education, activities, and psychological support.
Any support you can offer will help. Nothing is too little. God bless.
These totals represent all sources of contributions to the projects. We will try our best to keep them updated periodically.
Rooms for Resilience Project Phases
Please join us on this journey! Alalusi Foundation is helping to heal refugee children, orphans, and widows by creating children’s activity rooms and opportunities at the center they live at. The center has a large basement and backyard that is unusable due to recent flood damage. Each of the 70 refugee children and 28 widows come with their own traumatic stories and grief and are waiting for someone to notice them and give them a chance at life.
At the center, there are very little toys, sports equipment, art supplies, games, or technology for the children.
We have separated the project into manageable phases. Currently at the center, there are very few toys, sports equipment, art supplies or technology for the children. With your help we plan on hiring sports coaches, teaching social emotional curriculum to the children, offering various workshops, and provide parenting/self-care workshops to the mothers.
|Phase 1||Backyard with soccer and basketball area (Completed)|
|Phase 2||Indoor great play and multi-purpose room|
|Phase 3||Art room and prayer room|
|Phase 4||Classroom and small library area|
|Total Costs||Estimated Project Costs for Phases 1-5: $150,000|
It was an incredible experience to see the impact the backyard has had on the children. The children are laughing, smiling, and playing in the backyard. Given the success and impact of the backyard, we know the rest of the project is achievable and have seen the great impact it can have on the children’s lives.– Saadia Hameed
