The beautiful City of Petra Jordan that we all love to visit and can't stop talking about, needs your help. Lets not forget the people there that always put a smile on our face when we are there, and their hard work. The animals you like to ride, that have to be fed. The children that sell you postcards or jewelry in the Siq that need to be fed.
The people in this community survive on tourism. As we know, during the times of Covid, tourism has all but ceased to exist. Especially in places like this. A treasury once filled with the the sounds of tourists and cameras clicking and gasps of pure joy, is now quiet and calm, waiting for the world to return to normal like the rest of us. The difference is, while we still feed and clothe and shelter our children.. these tasks are a little bit harder there now. Especially with people living in caves or tents during these winter months. With more border closures expected in the near future, the struggle will only get harder.
I want to raise this money to help go towards food for the men, women children and animals, clothing and school supplies and any other basic necessities they may need. So I reach out to each and every one of you to remember your time in Petra and the smiles that greeted you there. Any amount you can help with, helps for their next meal. Even if you can only spare $1. $1 from 5000 people can feed the whole village.
Please share this fundraiser with your travel communities, and help us raise as much as we can. The people will be so grateful for your help and Petra will be waiting for you to return to its beauty soon.
