"A successful person is one who manages to lay down a new stone, a brick that would help firm up his nation's existence"
King Hussein bin Talal
The Rehabilitation & Welfare Society (Rewell Society), was founded in 1992 in accordance with Jordan's Charities and Civil Societies Laws. It is registered as an active charity with reference #1032. The Charity operates under and is in full compliance with the laws set forth by the Hashemite Kingdom of Jordan, Ministry of Social Development.
Our Part in
Building the Nation
Our story, motivation and objectives are about doing our part to make Jordan a better place for all. Interpreting the thoughts of the late King Hussein bin Talal: If each of us laid down a brick we would ultimately create a sustainable powerful national structure. Jordan may not be in the lower ranks of the global poverty index, but young Jordanians still suffer the absence of opportunities. They do seek their fair share in the dream of a better life; and as Rewell Society's founder Mohammed Mulhim discovered, access to knowledge and skills make the foundation of a better nation.

A Life of Advocacy & Charity
Mohammed Mulhim founded the Rehabilitation & Welfare Society (Rewell Society) in 1992. The Society is a crowning achievement for a long life spent advocating labor rights and democracy in Jordan and Palestine, as well as labor rights advocacy in Arabian Gulf states.
...the struggle to do good
The widespread injustice and the poverty that lawyer Mohammed Mulhim had endured early in life in occupied Palestine must have influenced much of his decisions in later years.
As university student, Mulhim found his calling in the study of law. His high school grades had ranked the highest nationally in Palestine, qualifying him for the rare scholarships that the British granted.
“While it is true that during my primary school years my colleagues and I dabbled in some form of activism, such work should have been based in knowledge and experience, if it was to become truer to its cause, acceptable and impactful. That’s what I have tried to accomplish as a student of law in Britain, which offered me access to diverse opinions and a democratic milieu within which our freedom to differ in opinions is tolerated,” wrote Mulhim in one of his many editorials. Then, he added: “And what a shock it was to come back to the Middle East in 1951.”
Mulhim had gone to work immediately after arriving in his hometown Halhoul in Palestine in 1951; he set up a marketing cooperative to support farmers and protect them from the feudal tendencies of landlords. Later on, he would help charter the Alumni Association in Hebron, which grew and thrived to become the leading Polytechnic in Palestine.
