Most of those living in Jordan are refugees — Bangladeshis, Circassians, Iraqis, Lebanese and Palestinians have all found refuge in this resource-poor kingdom. The churches are tiny, but very active. Thanks to you, Pontifical Mission provides impoverished mothers and their babies with quality health care; builds churches; sponsors catechism classes and Bible camps; and provides emergency relief — housing, food, jobs — to refugees and others in need.
