This spring Jean led a workshop at the Malki Children's Center in Amman. She donated children's books and art supplies including Studio Syria's education and fun packs.

The Malki Center was founded by the Salaam Cultural Museum out of Seattle and offers psychological counselling to Syrian children who are recovering from trauma from their war experience. It is a wonderfully uplifting place that shares classes in yoga as well as dancing, story time and meals. There is even a whole room full of sand. A trained psychologist is on hand to work with parents and children. 

Donations to the Malki Center can be made here. Donations to Studio Syria to buy more art supplies can be made at the Studio Syria website.
