Maran Maayah, founding father of Al Hadaf, explains that God positioned a burden on her coronary heart to assist orphan and refugee kids.
The imaginative and prescient was birthed in my soul and my coronary heart that each little one deserves an opportunity to stay, study, and develop.

Assist for the Hurting
Maayah believes serving to kids is very vital due to how weak they’re.
She particularly needs to assist the kid who’s, for instance, bodily abused or sexually abused or emotionally abused and [doesnt] know that that is abuse. Some kids are used to that sort of abuse as a result of they don’t know that that is improper, she says. The kid is, particularly the orphan, and not using a guardian. I really feel they want somebody that may take that position till they’re with a household or an grownup that may maintain them.
With over 750,000 registered refugees, Jordan has the second most refugees by inhabitants density. Maayah and the remainder of the workers at Al Hadaf have developed packages to assist these hurting in a number of methods. A technique they assist orphans is thru a life expertise curriculum.
We assist the youngsters via educating them life expertise [and] how valuable they’re within the eyes of the Creator as a result of [most of] the orphans in Jordan had been deserted, in order that they don’t have even a household’s title and a tribal group, Maayah explains. Then we go to hygiene after which we go to relationships, as much as coping with cash.
Al Hadaf additionally helps practice the childrens caregivers within the Jordanian foster care system.
Islam forbids adoption, so we’re not allowed to undertake in Jordan. However there’s a fostering program in Jordan, [and] we’re the one licensed coaching ministry to assist mothers [learn] the right way to maintain the kid.
Al Hadaf additionally gives artwork remedy to assist refugees who’ve skilled trauma. Maayah says that via these artwork remedy periods, Al Hadaf has additionally begun partnering with native faculties to assist stop the ideology of terrorism within the subsequent era.
We’re inviting the scholars to return and watch what this ideology of terrorism is doing to the households in Iraq, and we enable the ladies and youngsters to inform [their stories] for the scholars within the faculties in Jordan, she says.
The burden in Jordan is nice, and Al Hadaf has quite a few wants as they attempt to function many kids and households as they will.
I simply pray that God would give me energy as a frontrunner of the ministry. God will disguise me behind the cross and the individuals would see the love of Jesus via all the pieces we do, Maayah says.
Pray for the staff. The necessity is large and the employees are few, so it’s not simple to serve and to assist others and typically ignore your individual wants. [Pray] that God would give us knowledge the right way to cope with the people who find themselves traumatized and in a lot ache with out us taking the ache ourselves.
