Meeting with 'Aunty' Yusra Qazzaz
Updated: Jun 24, 2018
Aunty Yusra explained to me how Al Amal center is running. She has been doing this work for 40 years. Al Amal means hope. It is a center which runs from donations of various sources as government funding is limited.
Aunty's dream is to have a big land to build a bigger center. She already has a vision and the plans drafted. We hope that her dream comes true one day. Aunty's devotion is remarkable: although she is in the U.S., she is watching her center through the installed cameras in Jordan.

At one point, she even called one of the Jordanian helpers to tell her to move one of the children who could be injured! She made me cry. I hope to visit Al Amal Center one day. I would love to meet the children who are always smiling in the videos posted on Facebook. They have nothing but we have everything. Yet, they are the ones smiling....
