Even During the Pandemic, the Mission of the Church Goes on in Jordan

We received the above photograph Thursday morning from CNEWA’s office in Amman, Jordan.

Our regional director, Ra’ed Bahou writes:

Jordan began to relax its coronavirus measures on 27 April , by lifting the total lockdown, opening up all businesses, and allowing citizens to use their private vehicles during the day.

Consequently, our office in Amman is working full time to continue its’ mission at this crucial time.

The clinic offers a range of services to Jordan’s needy. While the staff treats injuries and common ailments, it focuses on prenatal and maternity care — a major demand in a country with a young and growing population. The staff manages to see between 100 and 130 patients a day. Patients of all creeds and ethnicities come to the clinic, drawn by its’ reputation for treating patients with respect, and by the affordable cost of its care.
