Jordan - IME
Evangelical Philadelphia Nazarene Church in Marka, Jordan came up with a way to financially help Iraqi refugees who were attending their house of worship. This is to do the letter ن in Mosaic artwork. This symbol is "the 14th letter of the Arabic alphabet and the equivalent to the Roman letter N. The ن stands for Nasara or Nazarenes, a pejorative Arabic word for Christians pronounced "noon". The church got this inspiring project started after training some Iraqi families in the step-by-step process to artfully create the individual mosaic pieces; and how to go about selling their work to help sustain themselves during their season in Jordan so the refugee families are able to support themselves.
