A Center for Hope for Refugees

Episcopal Relief & Development and the Sustainable Development Goals

 A Center for Hope for Refugees

Since 2013, the Za’atari Disability Center, with support from Episcopal Relief & Development, has provided a much-needed gathering place for addressing the learning needs of children with disabilities who are also affected by the traumas of war and displacement. Some have visual impairments; others may have hearing or mental disabilities. But all receive caring guidance, instruction and friendship through HLID staff and the center’s 14 volunteers, many of whom are themselves living in the camp and looking to contribute the skills they used as teachers in Syria. - See more on the ERD blog at: http://www.episcopalrelief.org/stories/a-center-for-hope-in-zaatari.  Watch a video here:  https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=yy8FoWqOQ3U&feature=youtu.be
