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.
The widows do not have money for clothes, snacks, or toys for their children. The widows are working hard at trying to earn any money they can by catering food or sewing. Unfortunately, they still can’t make ends meet and financial assistance is badly needed. We are collecting zakat which will be evenly distributed among the widows at the center.
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. These 70 children are waiting for someone to notice them and give them a chance at life. The center has a large basement and backyard that is unusable due to recent flood damage. The children do not have a safe place to play. 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. We are planning on hiring sports coaches, teaching social emotional curriculum to the children, offering various workshops, and provide parenting/self-care workshops to the mothers.
