New Cooperation Towards the Support of the Most Vulnerable People
In response to the call of God the Creator to stand next to the most vulnerable and neediest, the Middle East Council of Churches has always sought, since its establishment, to accompany the most marginalized and affected people due to the difficult living conditions. MECC aims to preserve their rights and dignity, in various countries of the Middle East. Within this context, the MECC Jordan office is implementing many programs to support Syrian and Iraqi refugees as well as vulnerable people from Jordanian host communities.
In this framework, the MECC Jordan’s Office, represented by its Director Mrs. Wafaa El Ghousous, signed a memorandum of understanding (MoU) with the Young Women’s Christian Association (YWCA) – Amman, represented by the Associations’ President Mrs. Hania Kakish. The MoU aimed at strengthening the cooperation towards the implementation of various training courses. It was signed on Wednesday 14 September 2022, at the headquarters of the Association.
The Jordanian team also seeks to secure a safe environment and the necessary knowledge to accompany elderlies and take care of them. Hence, another agreement was signed in this context between the Director of the Elderly Care Program at the MECC Jordan’s Office Mr. Azmi Al Adwan, and the Executive Director of the Academy Mrs. Rola Habaybeh.
Therefore, the Academy will be qualified as the training body which will assist MECC, through the agreement, in providing the training program, competencies and the qualified trainers. In addition to the training rooms, equipment, devices and all other logistics.
The Elderly Care training course starts on 15 September and ends on 15 December 2022, and will include many sessions as well as field trainings in elderly care centers. At the end of the training, participants will receive a certificate of attendance.
