Like many organisations, we have been busy working out how to respond to the COVID-19 Coronavirus and its impact on those who are scheduled to travel with us over the next few months. However, the difficulties we face pale into insignificance compared to the situations our partners are dealing with.
As you may have seen, the Coronavirus has already led to Bethlehem being placed in quarantine for 30 days, and to the closure of large parts of the West Bank.
Much of Bethlehem’s economy depends on tourism and the impact will be acute. We can only imagine the impact that the virus will have if it enters Gaza.
Similarly, we are aware of the impact upon our partners in Nicaragua. Since the unrest in 2018, they have had a very difficult two years with tourist groups from the USA cancelling their trips.
We have therefore launched our Coronavirus Appeal to bring immediate and practical relief to those affected by the virus. We will work with our partners on the ground to allocate funds where they’re most needed.
Finally, our thoughts are with all those who are suffering acutely from this disease and those who are mourning lost loved ones.
Director, Amos Trust
We work alongside grass-roots partners in Palestine, South Africa, Nicaragua, Burundi, India and Tanzania.
Reaching children on the streets, addressing their trauma, working with them and their families to reintegrate them into their homes, to realise their rights and recover their future.
Working with local and international peace activists, and partnering with grass-roots projects, to call for a just peace, reconciliation and full equal rights for all Palestinians and Israelis.
Addressing the impact of climate change and the causes of extreme poverty, building sustainable rural communities and empowering them to realise their rights.
Bringing people together to meet our partners from around the world, visiting the communities they work in and seeing their projects in action — building solidarity and lasting friendships.
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.
