Does the Coronavirus pandemic open up possibilities for reconciliation?
Thursday 4th June at 5pm BST
A discussion centred around whether Coronavirus has created more opportunities for dialogue between Palestinians and Israelis, or if it has further polarised positions. With a call for urgent action over the new Israeli Government’s plans to annex large parts of the West Bank.
Lucy Talgieh (top) runs the women’s empowerment programmes at Wi’am Conflict Resolution Centre in Bethlehem. Situated beside one of Bethlehem’s main checkpoints and the Separation Wall, the centre aims to strengthen local communities and to support them in tackling increased family breakdowns and community tensions created by the Occupation and lack of freedom.
Dr. Zoughbi Alzoughbi (middle), to give him his full title, is the Founder and Director of Wi’am in Bethlehem. No stranger to Amos friends and supporters, Zoughbi is a long-standing Amos partner and friend and has made many visits to the UK from the West Bank.
Madeleine McGivern (bottom) has been a trustee of Amos for three years. She is HelpAge International’s Global Humanitarian Advocacy Adviser, having previously worked as a human rights monitor and advocate, and led a series of programmes and campaigns working in the Middle East team at Christian Aid and for Mind, the national mental health charity.

For a while now we’ve been discussing the idea of hosting a series of online webinars — conversations with our partners and friends from around the world. During this time of lockdown, we thought it was more important than ever to continue to talk about the issues that all our partners face, particularly in light of the Covid-19 pandemic.
At the core of Amos Trust’s work are the individuals who support us. Our work is made possible by you. Large or small, your donation makes a real difference.
