Help Refugee Children in Jordan Love. Hope. Healing. Life.

Giving Every Child a Chance

We help refugee families who are unable to get care for their children who have severe heart disease. 

In many cases, the families we work with in Jordan hold refugee status by the UN, so they are unable to work or leave the country. This means they can’t afford to get lifesaving care for their children. 

By partnering with a local hospital, we bring hope and healing to families in Jordan.

Meet Ahmed

Ahmed is two years old and he was born in Jordan, where his parents came as refugees from Syria. Then Ahmed’s fingers and toes started turning blue and he began to have trouble eating. 

Preliminary testing showed that not only did Ahmed have a hole in his heart, but all of the organs in his little body were on the wrong side. Ahmed’s medical condition is very rare, and very complicated to operate on successfully. Ahmed’s parents, his medical team, and Morning Star Foundation knew that choosing to move forward with surgery for Ahmed would be very risky, but agreed that hope for Ahmed was worth the risk. 

In April 2019, Ahmed was the first child that Morning Star Foundation was able to provide heart surgery to in Jordan.

Over the course of its history, millions of refugees from other countries in the region have come to Jordan, fleeing violence and war. Most recently, refugees have come from Syria’s civil war.

Refugees live in camps and throughout the city, but they are not citizens. As UN designated refugees, they aren’t permitted to work or leave the country. This makes it nearly impossible for families to get the care they need for their children who have severe medical conditions - like heart defects or heart disease.

That’s why Morning Star Foundation has partnered with a hospital in Amman, the capital city of Jordan. Through the generous support of the hospital, we can fund lifesaving travel and care for children who had no other options.
