Full of energy

The Carpenters’ Son Foundation board members Fred Doeze Jager and René Kolsters, together with his son Thomas, travelled to Jordan at the end of June 2021 to meet people from the foundation’s network, and to make an inventory of potential projects. Below you will find the second part of their travel report.

“After a short night of sleep, we were ready for our first two visits in one day. The first person we met was Jason, who works with the 3DP4ME foundation (3D printing for the Middle East). Jason used to work with Brother Andrew while setting up the Jordan Center for Rehabilitation Technology (JCRT) in Salt. After Brother Andrew’s passing, Jason moved to Amman, continuing to establish his organisation 3DP4ME for developing cheap hearing aids and for 3D printing of custom made earmolds. We asked Jason for his future plans and how The Carpenter’s Son foundation might be able to help him. It was a great pleasure meeting him.

A life full of energy
Broeder Andrew cooperated with Yohanna, who used to be active in the JCRT as well with 3D printing of artifical limbs. After Brother Andrew’s passing, he volunteered for a Korean Cultural Centre in Fuheis (near Salt). In this position, he supports teaching of Syrian refugees. Next to that, he owns his own 3D printing company and teaches technoloy lessons to Syrian refugees mainly, giving them an opportunity for a better job.
We shared emotional moments. Brother Andrew’s passing left deep scars in the people we speak. Yohanna pointed out that he does not directy devote his work to deaf and deafblind people. However, he is full of energy and is following his calling. 

We’re looking forward to the various other meetings in the coming days. Please travel with us by reading our blogs!”
