Humane: Do Some Good
Refugees in Jordan Need Our Help
Imagine the entire population of Canada suddenly rushing across the borders of the United States fleeing in desperation and arriving as refugees. That will never happen, but take yourself across the world to Jordan. Right now, more than a million refugees are encamped there. That’s 1/6 of their national population. All of them are crowded into a country that is about the size of Indiana. These are people who were doctors and lawyers in their former countries and now, because of conflict, had to flee with the clothes on their backs and children in tow to find themselves living in tents dependent on international humanitarian aid.
