Jofeh Community Rehabilitation Center, Jordan Valley, Jordan

The Jofeh Center is a community-based outreach program of the Holy Land Institution for the Deaf, offering therapy, vocational training, and in-house workshops to students with a wide range of physical and cognitive disabilities.

Your impact as an AFEDJ Donor

  • Pilgrims and visitors to Jordan rarely stop in Jofeh, so the Center’s work is not well known. All who do visit are uplifted by the wonderful work of Yousef and his staff.
  • This is a ministry where every dollar makes a significant impact on vulnerable children’s lives.
