Eastertide Appeal 2021

April 14, 2021- Posted in AFEDJ, Diocese of Jerusalem, Disabilities, Gaza, Healthcare, Jerusalem, Supporters, West Bank

Give the gift of hope for a productive life to a deaf or deaf-blind child in the Holy Land during this Easter season.

What better time for us to join in service with our brothers and sisters in the Episcopal Diocese of Jerusalem.

As the season approaches when we turn our eyes toward the Holy Land, please help us meet our goal of raising $100,000 to keep ten students at the Holy Land Institute for the Deaf. Your gift will make a profound and immediate difference in the lives of these vulnerable children.”
