Kind Request

Please make others, for whom this website may be of interest, aware of its existence.
To all friends of Jeel al Amal

On 31 August 2012 Jeel al Amal officially started a page on Facebook. It can be reached through:
This page is in Dutch, but will be translated into English. The profile photograph is the brand new logo, that will accompany each message. The cover picture features the editorial team of the Jeel al Amal websites: Najwa Sahhar-Sayegh, Jbara Mahmoud and Ton van den Ende.

A sparkling page
On the time line of the Facebook page one finds a sort of visiting card for every issue of Jeel News in 2012, with a colorful picture, a summary of the contents and a link to the web page.

At the bottom of the time line there is a wall painting by Bill George, titled 'God bless Jeel al Amal'. It depicts an oriental city, arable land and in the foreground an open hand with grains of corn. This is the image of Jeel al Amal, where since 1972 a generation is growing up that offers hope for a better world.

If you register yourself on the Facebook page, you can read and react to what others have to tell. In that way a two way traffic will start.

The Facebook page of Jeel al Amal will keep you informed about the websites. However, posts on Facebook can also influence the contents of the website. For instance, the two photos of Najwa and Ton on the homepage have been replaced by the picture of the editorial team, that is prominently placed on Facebook.

A working visit to Jeel al AmaL
From 24 to 31 March 2012 the undersigned have brought a working visit to Jeel al Amal. Just to avoid any misunderstanding: the trip was paid for by ourselves.

It is noteworthy to mention that the highlight of Ad has always been very enthusiastic about Jeel al Amal. Now he could see it with his own eyes. It really was an eye-opener, that he captured on photo and film. For Ton it meant, after 25 years, a reunion with this project with which he has been involved right from the very beginning.

Through Najwa we were able to make contact with the house, the children, the staff and the members of the board. There was a fruitful exchange of ideas and wishes.

First harvest
The new logo, designed by Arno en Jeann van Dijk, was received favourably. We spoke about renewing the website and making use of Facebook. Jbara was asked to strengthen the editorial team. This and much more was sowed during these days.

The appearance of Jeel al Amal’s Facebook page is the first harvest of this visit. Ad Murck put a lot effort into getting it up and running. In his spare time he will gradually expand the page, especially by posting motion pictures about Jeel.

We look back on this inspiring working visit with feelings of gratefulness for the openness, cooperation and hospitality.
