This document includes all the 25 stories that the Information and Research Center – King Hussein Foundation (IRCKHF) team colleceted and published during the curfew and COVID-19 locdown in Jordan in 2020. In these stories the team captured the challenges while still seeing the positive side, to give people hope, hence the title of the series was ‘Glimpses of Hope in the Era of Corona: Our Stories from Jordan’.
The IRCKHF team tried to cover all those people that they have done research with or about, the most marginalized. People in Jordan often think that the most marginalized are only refugees, but the team brought the stories of women, single mothers, women married to foreigners, children of Jordanian women married to non-Jordanians, care leavers, people with disabilities, as well as some others that were just uplifting.
The stories were published on IRCKHF social media channels between March 27 until May 21, 2020.
The series showed that during the curfew and COVID-19 crisis time: 1) those who were already suffering from social injustice were suffering even more, because they are the ones most left out. 2) that the series reminded us something important about society in Jordan, the importance and value of thinking of and helping one other, whether through neighbors, volunteers, grassroots initiatives, or CSOs.
