Wait! Good News for a Change

Okay, some good news.

The World Monuments Fund - driven by work from made possible by a new grant of 530,000 Pounds (approximately $670,000) from the British Council's Cultural Protection Funds - is doing a very cool thing in Jordon.

They are training Syrian refugees and Jordanians to help rebuild, preserve and teach about the historical sites in Jordan and (hopefully later) Syria. (link)

It is a concrete step to help the refugees where they are to build a better life and prepare them for something inside Syria after the war.

My total respect to The World Monuments Fund and the British Council Cultural Protection Funds.
