(Jordan)–Topping the news, the conflict with Iraq continues to escalate, and one humanitarian aid group is readying themselves to meet the expected flood of war refugees into Jordan. Myles Fish, president of International Aid, says their representatives are establishing a relief system in the camps, but security remains a concern. “One of the problems that was experienced in Afghanistan was that some of the stock piled supplies were looted in advance of the refugees arriving. So learning from experience I think the Jordanian government is being careful not to release that.” Fish says part of their mission is to provide health care. “We will be providing food and water purification systems, pharmaceuticals and medical supplies. We have an entire portable medical clinic that we’ll be setting up so that we can provide health care to the refugees as they come.” International Aid meets the other part of the mission by partnering with local believers in order to show God’s love by meeting physical and spiritual needs.
