 Day 4


Day 4 in Madaba started with sun salutation. Some of us decided to start this long day with yoga lessons. There’s a surprise for breakfast: our Jordanian friends offer us some hummus. Suddenly, we heard our yellow buses honking, reminding us that it’s time to get down to work. Our destination is the Latin School, where we will create a mural on the wall in front of the church of Saint John.    >>>>> more

 Day 2


Day two here in Madaba. We wake up by the sound of a ringing bell remembering us that today it is the real start of this camp.
We have our usual breakfast under the khaima, just the time to smoke a cigarette and we get on our yellow bus. East District is our destination. We get to the house of the first Syrian family that we are visiting today. We receive a warm welcome from a child who looks at us curiously. He invites us to take our shoes off.
Salam aleikom. We take a seat on the matress in front of a fan in full mode. The father of the child starts by telling us how he lost one of his daughters. He doesn’t know where she is, if she is still alive after she was arrested by the Syrian army.
