Today, CARE CEO Helene Gayle visited Rawda and her children, who are Syrian refugees living in Jordan. Rawda teared up as she told Dr. Gayle about losing her husband during a bomb blast in Syria, and struggling as a widowed mother of 5.

But, there is good news! Although Rawda was initially told all of the schools in Jordan were full, following a CARE visit that brought the family's situation to the attention of the community, the children are now enrolled! Dr. Gayle was so thrilled that she brought the children gifts, which mostly consisted of school supplies for the new school year.
