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.
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.

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
