Finding refuge in Jordan

When Baghdad was struck by U.S. bombs in March, Malual Agu Malual Dor and his family fled to a refugee camp in Jordan for third-country nationals. Malual, a native of Wau, Sudan, had worked in Baghdad for nearly 20 years, throughout the Iraq-Iran conflict and the 1991 Gulf War. He opted this time to go to safety with his wife, Halima, and young family. The Lutheran World Federation Department for World Service expects that the war will displace up to 3 million people. LWF workers are offering their years of experience to help distribute aid and run additional refugee camps.
