AMMAN – On Tuesday, June 20, Our Lady of the Visitation parish organized the grand raffle draw for the benefit of Our Lady of the Mount home.

In front of the Church of Our Lady of Peace Center, the faithful from various towns specially came that evening to attend the big draw for Our Lady of the Mount. Fadhi who is originally from Madaba sold 500 tickets to family and friends and carefully checked all the numbers drawn. Four young people were in charge of rotating the large spinning wheel where the tickets of the lucky winners were drawn from under the watchful eye of four observers.  The lucky winner of the grand prize, a 2017 Toyota Corolla, was Fozy Samarneh.

At the initiative of Father Hugo and the parishioners, this lottery, which raised 40,000 JD, will help Our Lady of Mount home. In this region marked by poverty, children with disability are welcomed at Our Lady of the Mount home to a family setting, supervised by the Sisters of the Incarnate Word and other volunteers. This is a project being carried out by the Latin Patriarchate in collaboration with other associations, and will also rely on the help of new benefactors for its completion.
