CNEWA’s Jerusalem office has long had a close relationship with Gaza’s churches and their works, especially the schools, health care facilities and initiatives for children with special needs. That support became critical over the summer.
CNEWA responded quickly by delivering emergency aid to Christian health care facilities, especially the clinics of the Near East Council of Churches and Al Ahli Arab Hospital, offering both medical services and programs to help children cope with the psychological trauma of war. CNEWA is also providing grants for counseling programs in Christian-run schools, and aid to the Myrrh Bearers Society for care for the elderly.
The need remains great — especially for the children. Help those who are suffering by calling:
