1,258 Syrians entered Jordan in a 24 hour period on Monday 3.3.14

I'm heading back to Jordan in two weeks with SCM Medical Missions. I hadn't checked on the number of refugees that have been entering the country of recent so decided to do so. 

A total of 1,258 Syrians entered Jordan in a 24 hour period on Monday.

Jordan is smaller than the state of Indiana and has about 6 million inhabitants - about the same as Indiana.

There are now over 600,000 Syrian refugees in Jordan heading towards a million by the end of the year. Can you imagine the state of Indiana growing by a million in a year and a half?????

The NEED IS IMMENSE. Thanks to all who help.

If you are interested in helping here's one of many ways:

  1. Gina, as promised, looked you up. Great respect for you doing this, so Tweeted. Don't do politics (on Social Media) but hate to see people displaced from their homes .... Been Jordan and Lebanon and they are great places.
