November 25-December 3, 2018
We will be partnering with Global Hope Network International working with refugees.
Cost of the trip: $1,500-$2,000 depending on the price of airfare. Total covers airfare, lodging, food and ground transportation. Bring additional money for souvenirs. An extended visit into Israel would add approximately $1,000 to the cost of the trip.
We will do the following:
• Visit the homes of refugees, delivering relief items, and listening to their stories.
• Visit the House of Ruth–a community center in a village south of Amman. The center provides opportunities for women to generate income using embroidery and mosaic skills.
On our cultural day we will either visit the ancient city of Petra or cross over into Israel for an extended visit.
Side note: Jordan has 7 million inhabitants-2 million of those are refugees who have fled conflict in Iraq, Syria and other neighboring Arabic countries.
