AMOS TRUST CHRISTMAS APPEAL 2019

This Christmas we want to give practical support to those working for peace in Gaza and the West Bank. We want to invest in the young people of Gaza by funding courses in graphic design and metalwork and by supporting their mental well being. We want to back those who put themselves on the line to rebuild family homes demolished on the West Bank.

If you want to be a peace builder, a peace constructor, get up and
do something, don’t be a peace contemplator, a peace talker.”
Elias Chacour

Our Christmas appeal this year is for the peace builders of Palestine, for our partners NECC in Gaza and Holy Land Trust in Bethlehem. For the hope they bring through their vocational training for young people in Gaza and by rebuilding homes destroyed by the Israeli military on the West Bank.

  • £36 will pay for 120 concrete blocks as each rebuilt home needs 4,600

  • £85 will pay for the materials for a metalwork course for a teenager in Gaza who was unable to complete school

  • £120 will pay for a water tank for a rebuilt home because water supplies are so often cut off

  • £140 will pay for vital mental wellbeing support for a young person in Gaza

  • £460 will pay for one local builder to lead on a home rebuild

  • £1,140 will fully fund a graphic design course to create fresh opportunities for young women in Gaza.

And finally:

  • £24 will allow a family to plant an olive tree beside their rebuilt house and start to make it a home again.

Please donate now.
Thank you.

This year we will be dividing our Christmas Appeal between our partners NECC in Gaza and Holy Land Trust in Bethlehem. You can read more about their work below.

NECC Gaza
NECC Training Centre in Gaza City offers psychosocial support and vocational training to the young people of Gaza — the innocent victims of three wars since 2009 – giving them an irresistible hope for the future. NECC, Gaza (Near East Council of Churches), is engaged in humanitarian work to support Palestinian refugees in Gaza, particularly disadvantaged youth, women and other vulnerable groups.

Specialist mentoring and psychological support are given to all students, which are essential to help them not only to complete and succeed in their training courses, but also to develop as individuals and cope with the isolation of everyday life in Gaza.

Holy Land Trust
Holy Land Trusts community outreach team works tirelessly to strengthen communities and help local people unite in acts of non-violent resistance against the occupation.

They enable creative programmes and projects — both locally and globally — that foster understanding, healing and empowerment of individuals and communities affected by the Israeli occupation.
