Queen Rania is by far the most beautiful queens to ever take the throne in Jordan. I personally admire her, she's really trying to do a lot of good for Jordan, just as HRM King Abdullah II, whom I also admire. Their strives for Peace and Justice, and not to mention womens rights (which is FANTASTIC) in Jordan.

Honestly, I'm a young Jordanian American, and I've never been more proud. I'm keeping my fingers crossed that they get Jordan back on its feet, which I know they will.

Tuestay- KARAK — It was a disturbing sight for visitors who made their way into Um Bader's shabby tent, barren of the most basic comforts and swarming with flies.

Without a stable source of income, Um Bader is never sure of being able to feed her five children. But like many hapless families in the impoverished village of Ghweibeh, Um Bader found a compassionate hand yesterday with the visit by Her Majesty Queen Rania.

“The situation is unbearable. My husband is unemployed and we can't afford to make ends meet. Food is hard to come by and we're barely scraping through during Ramadan,” the distraught Um Bader told Queen Rania.

“Sometimes I can't even find milk for my five-month old baby Mohammad,” she said, pointing to the child who lay covered in a ragged blanket drinking milk from a soda bottle and surrounded by flies.

Queen Rania listened attentively to Um Bader's troubles yesterday, and asked the officials accompanying her to swiftly address the immediate needs of Ghweibeh's impoverished community.

Her visit to the Jordan Valley yesterday comes in line with a series of field visits the Queen started throughout the Kingdom's governorates during the Holy Month of Ramadan, complemented by a simultaneous drive of distribution of iftar meals, as well as in-kind assistance to needy families.

Her visit on Tuesday also aimed to follow up on the provision of such services and making certain that they had indeed reached citizens.

In this small rural community, poverty affects most of its 1,500 residents.

Queen Rania had visited the destitute village in December 2000, when she stopped in on Ghweibeh Elementary School — the only one in the locality.

Back then, the school, which counted around 28 students, had no windows or doors. The school was later moved to the nearby health centre, not in use at the time.

Yesterday, Queen Rania returned to the school, where now 100 students are enrolled, and toured the classrooms and inspected facilities. She talked with both students and teachers who also had their share of complaints.

For most teachers, who live in different parts of the Jordan Valley, transportation to and from work poses a constant problem, according to the school's headmaster Adnan Thleimat.

In addition, he said, many of the students are unable to secure the annual school fees of JD3.25.

“Some of the poorest students are exempted from paying the fees, while others are able to pay through charity provided to them by goodwill,” said Thleimat.

Acknowledging the headmaster's concerns, the Queen stressed the importance of providing students with an environment conducive to learning.

She also asked officials to provide new computers to replace the four old machines in the facility.

During her tour, Queen Rania also checked progress on construction of a new three-storey boys' school in the community.

She also visited the newly built mosque whose construction she had funded and joined citizens in prayer.

The Queen later met with community residents and instructed the concerned authorities to facilitate their use of fallow land for cultivation to improve farmers' living conditions.

The late King Hussein had granted the rural community, mostly from the Azazmeh tribe, 30,000 dunums of agricultural land to assist in their socio-economic development and an additional 2,100 dunums on which to build new homes.

The Queen asked that new housing units be provided to needy families in coordination with the Ministry of Planning.

While land is available, inhabitants of this community told the Queen their hardships were far from over as both drinking and irrigation water was scarce.

Residents told the Queen they had to travel to neighbouring villages, the closest of them at least 12 kilometres away, to obtain water.

Her visit included a stop at the village's health centre where she inspected services provided to the citizens and instructed that a full-time medical team be present at the facility to ensure that every patient receives prompt medical attention.

According to Awwad Khleifat, a non-resident doctor at the health centre, the number of patients does not exceed 10 a week.

“For a start, we have a shortage of staff. I receive around five patients twice a week but that doesn't reflect the number of people who need health services,” said Khleifat.

The doctor pointed out that poor residents could not afford medical treatment at the health centre and hence resort to other centres where services are free.

The visit to Ghweibeh is part of continuous efforts which Queen Rania has embarked on through a comprehensive approach reaching out to citizens and addressing their every need through inspection field visits that aim to improve living conditions of all Jordanians.

During recent visits, Queen Rania checked on educational and medical facilities in Sweimeh and Wadi Al Rayyan in the Jordan Valley, Bani Kinanah district in Irbid, Juweideh and Khreibet Al Souq on the outskirts of Amman, as well as Zarqa.

Thanks for posting. I wonder if Jordan is using some of the billions in US aid it gets for this type of development, or is it all military aid?

Queen Rania Champions Children's Causes in Jordan

25 NOVEMBER 2003
Queen Rania of Jordan has been busy this week, making the royal rounds in Jordan as she champions a number of children's causes.

The queen and her husband King Abdullah II made a surprise visit to an Amman orphanage this weekend, greeting youngsters and discussing possible improvements to the centre with staff. And on Monday, Queen Rania toured the Dar Al Aman child safety centre's new headquarters.

The royal engagements came just a few days after Rania, accompanied by two dozen children, stopped by the Central Bank of Jordan to launch the Al-Aman Orphans Trust Fund Project, an initiative that aims at securing a better future for orphans in social institutions.

Earlier this month, Queen Rania handed over more than $500,000 – including $250,000 worth of medical supplies – to the humanitarian organisation International Medical Corps. The money, which was raised at a gala dinner by the STARS Foundation, will go towards helping treat Iraqi children suffering from cancer.

Queen Rania is larger than her husband the King.
But how large is King Abdullah exactly? ....Maybe large is not the right word...
