9780956417084: Small Miracles: The Story of the Princess Alia Foundation

When Lyn White, an animal cruelty investigator, mooted the idea of an organisation to alleviate and prevent the appaling abuse of animals she was daily witness to, Princess Alia immediately embraced it and saw in it the opportunity to help humans in need as well as animals. Tireless in her charitable work and a woman of limitless compassion, Her Royal Highness nonetheless needed support to get the idea off the ground, and the obvious choice was Sherifa Sarra Ghazi, someone already committed to animal welfare and education, and highly organised and motivated besides. The Foundation is now well established. Although staffed entirely by volunteers and dependent on finance and support from kindly individuals and organisations within Jordan and around the world, its reputation and reach continue to grow. The New Hope Treatment Centre was launched in 2010 to provide medical care for animals, and Growing Together (Equine Therapy) initiated early in 2012 is already showing remarkable results with troubled and autistic children. The story of the Princess Alia Foundation, its triumphs and tragedies, hopes and dreams, and the small miracles that take place each day, is told here – at times harrowing and heart-breaking, at times joyful and uplifting. Above all, it is indisputable evidence of the humbling and transformative power of kindness. Written with passion and humour and gloriously illustrated, this book should be compulsory reading in every part of the world, to reawaken the seeds of compassion that live in all mankind but all too often lie dormant through ignorance or social conditioning, to remind us that we share this planet and our destiny with all living things, and to promote the balance, harmony and respect of all creation.

Book Description Medina Publishing Ltd, United Kingdom, 2014. Hardback. Book Condition: New. Language: English . This book usually ship within 10-15 business days and we will endeavor to dispatch orders quicker than this where possible. Brand New Book. Co-authored by HRH Princess Alia, eldest daughter of the late King Hussein of Jordan, and Sharifa Sarra Ghazi, Small Miracles, the Story of the Princess Alia Foundation tells of an extraordinary charitable endeavour. When it was established in 2009, the authors little knew how the Foundation would fundamentally change their lives, as well as the lives of countless others - both animal and human. When Lyn White, an animal cruelty investigator, suggested the need for an organisation to alleviate and prevent the appaling abuse of animals she was daily witness to, Princess Alia immediately embraced it and saw in it a wider mandate to include special needs and public health, as well as animal welfare. Tireless in her charitable work and a woman of limitless compassion, she nonetheless needed support to get the idea off the ground, and the obvious choice was her cousin Sharifa Sarra Ghazi, someone already committed to animal welfare and to general education, and highly organised and motivated besides. The Foundation is now well established. Originally staffed entirely by volunteers and still dependent on donations and support from kindly individuals and organisations within Jordan and around the world, its reputation and reach continue to grow. The New Hope Centre was launched in 2010 to provide medical care and rehabilitation for rescued and confiscated wildlife and endangered animals, and Growing Together (Equine Therapy), initiated in late 2010, has shown remarkable results with troubled and autistic children. More recent projects include partnership with Vier Pfoten International to establish the Al Ma wa Wildlife Sanctuary, and Learning Today, Leading Tomorrow, whose mission is to help troubled youths become the agents of change and lead the world towards a brighter future The story of the Foundation, its triumphs and tragedies, hopes and dreams, and the small miracles that take place each day, is told here - at times harrowing and heartbreaking, at times joyful and uplifting. Above all, it is indisputable evidence of the humbling and transformative power of kindness. Written with passion and humour and gloriously illustrated, this book should be compulsory reading in every part of the world. It will do much to reawaken the seeds of compassion which reside in us all, but all too often lie dormant through inertia, ignorance or social conditioning. This is an inspiring story that will remind us that we share this planet and our destiny with all living things and will help to promote balance, harmony and respect for all creation.
