Helping students in Jordan started in 1998 when Norma Nashed, Restore A Child’s president visited her homeland while fighting cancer. She visited the school that she used to clean as a 10-year old girl to pay for her tuition and saw two children sent home because their parents could not pay their tuition. There was no question as to what Norma needed to do and the children were back in school the next day.
Restore a Child has been supporting 60 poor refugee children from Iraq, Syria and Palestine at Amman, Jordan. Restore a Child helps children regardless of their race, ethnic or religious background. For access to quality education, Restore a Child provided $30,000, a grant from VERSACARE, to purchase a school bus in 2013.
