amos trust christmas appeal

A new born baby crying in Gaza can not be comforted by a world which prefers to look away. They will be forgotten, until the next round of destruction.

Amos Trust Christmas Appeal 2017

Standing in solidarity with Palestine

Gaza only has 2-3 hours of electricity each day – this means that hospitals, schools and essential services cannot run normally, sewage is left untreated, and for a people who hold on with such dignity (sumud), but are forced to be dependant on food aid, the situation is made more desperate.

A parent in Bethlehem has to decide whether to stay or to go, whether to give their child a chance to enjoy the rights and freedoms we take for granted, or to stay with their family on land that has been their home for generations but is now shrinking under the on going Occupation.

This year, Amos’ Christmas appeal is for the work of our partners:

  • Al Ahli Hospital in Gaza
    As they reach out to mothers and small children in their community

  • Holy Land Trust in Bethlehem
    As they seek to keep hope in the future alive, despite the current political failures

  • And it is for our advocacy work
    As we stand in solidarity with the people from whom we have learnt so much. As we call on our government to recognise our shared humanity, and to hold to account those who perpetuate injustice.
