Together we feel better

“Our purpose is to help people become more positive and constructive.”

This group consists of Sunni Muslims, Christians and Druze. Members have been meeting informally together for some time, often sharing their love for the practice of yoga. Their experience has been that when people of varying faiths come together, individuals feel less isolated. When they reflected upon one of URI’s principles – the importance of respecting the wisdom inherent in each tradition – they decided to form a Cooperation Circle (CC). They hope to help others understand the necessity of cultivating respect for one other at the deepest level.

Recent activities: Money and clothes were raised for injured Gazans in the Hussein Medical Centre, Amman and collecting food and money to donate to the underprivileged during Ramadan.  To celebrate World Interfaith Harmony Week a hike was organized around Amman and blankets were collected for Syrian refugees in Jordan. For the International Day of Peace an entertainment program was conducted for 165 children who have hearing or visual impairments.
