Rasha is a fashionable and upbeat woman who is very excited to speak about her family’s experience in Jordan. She explains that she knocked on many doors before coming to CRP, but everyone told her they could not help her. She is thankful for CRP, because "they opened the door and told me to come in." Since then, Rasha has been very involved at the center, volunteering almost daily, and all four of her children have participated in a number of activities, including English lessons, sports and the teen Dreams Group.
Rasha is extremely optimistic, despite the adversity she faces. After her house was burned down in Iraq because of her husband’s work, the family fled to Jordan. They found themselves without food or furniture. Though she has benefited from CRP’s emergency assistance program, she describes Amman’s refugee populations poetically as "a sinking people." Yet she is optimistic and humble — bubbling over with gratefulness for the support her family has found from CRP in Amman.
