Muna, a 65-year-old widow who came to Jordan alone, brought the keys to her house. "They're useless," she says. "It just has sentimental value now. They symbolize the home I worked 50 years for."

Yousra and Mahmoud brought various medications purchased for their 4.5 month old daughter.
"We are worried about the baby." says Yousra. "She is very precious to us as we have already had one taken from us. She has been sick while we have been in Jordan and we went to one hospital but they wanted 100JD to treat her but we didn’t have it.”
Yousra was forced to stand in front of the mosque and beg until someone helped her. After they paid for her to be treated the doctors didn’t know what was wrong with her. They tried lots of different medicines but nothing worked.
“We have now been told that she has chronic bronchitis – this is why we can’t live in the camp – it’s dusty and would be bad for her. I am afraid that if we go there she would die. "
Here's a history lesson for you. Did you know that we coined the term "care package" when 22 American charities came together to form CARE? We got our start by delivering CARE packages to war-torn Europe in 1946.
Many CARE package recipients became long-time supporters of CARE, like Marta Edie (left) who received a CARE package from her future husband while she was living in Germany. To this day, she still enjoys the same brand of cream crackers (Jacob's) that she received in her package!

Can you figure out the correct answers? Hint - read about our history: http://ar.gy/4E~W
