Caleb Ramos' Jordan Trip
My name is Caleb Ramos, I am a 15 year old Freshman at Ridge Point High School in Missouri City, Texas. This summer I have the opportunity to go to Mafraq, Jordan as a volunteer on a humanitarian relief trip to help love and serve Syrian refugee families that have left everything behind to flee from the brutality of ISIS and the Assad regime in Syria.
The civil war in Syria is the greatest humanitarian disaster in my lifetime. In the past few years more than 11 million people have been forced to flee their homes and more than 4 million are now refugees in the neigboring countries of Turkey, Lebanon and Jordan.
I will be going to Mafraq, Jordan for 12 days this summer as part of a humanitarian relief team with Urban Catalyst. While in Jordan I will spend my time distributing much needed food and supplies to refugee families, helping at a school for refugee children (most of whom have missed 3 or more years of school due to the crisis,) visiting refugees in their homes (showing them dignity, listening to their stories, and offering hope,) and doing whatever else is needed.
I need to raise $2,750 by June 25th in order to go on this trip. This money will go to cover my airfare, food, lodging and expenses in Jordan as I serve Syrian refugees. I am excited about this great opportunity and am very grateful for any assistance that you can give.
