Sz commented on We Love Reading: Refugee-led Reading Circles

Salamo Alykom( the peace be upon you) sister Rana. Starting from this verse of Quraan " اقْرَأْ وَرَبُّكَ الْأَكْرَمُ الَّذِي عَلَّمَ بِالْقَلَمِ عَلَّمَ الْإِنسَانَ مَا لَمْ يَعْلَم" "Read and your Lord is Most Generous, who taught by the pen Taught man that which he knew not" i would like to send heaps of congrats on your NGO's achievements at the Zaatari Camp. This is a very important idea in terms of educating kids at their first stage of life. Actually your idea should be spread all over the world and reach all refugees no matter what their religion, belief or race is. My question is that Do you have any sort of plans for expanding outside Jordan? I am Lebanese and i left to Australia to get enrolled in my master program. I feel happy to read this. Jazaki Allhu Khayr, may God reward you on this.

Sz commented on Adjusting to school in a foreign land

Hello Brett,
this is Souhaib from Lebanon, the country that has the highest number of Syrian Refugees. I feel touched with what you say but this is only 1/4 of what the Syrian refugees are passing through. You would have much more to talk about if you visit Lebanon and see how these Refugees are living. You won't believe actually. Some of the Syrians Refugees are becoming full time students in our Lebanese schools whereas some of them are not due to the bad economical issues surrounding these refugees. As you spoke that the Eldest boy prefer to work rather to die from eating, himself and his family. My point is why don't you visit Lebanon and try to work on helping these poor refugees which the Lebanese Government is not helping them financially. They pay rent, bills, life expenses from the pocket. What can be done at this stage from your side? I look forward to hearing from you. Thank you a lot for Highlighting this matter which is expanding year after year as the number of Syrian refugees is increasing.
