A great privilege to visit both the Holy Child Programme in Beit Sahour and The L’Arche Community in Bethlehem. Mahmoud Rabah is an intensive care nurse at the Caritas Baby Hospital in Bethlehem and one of ACIC’s local advisors. He and I went to the Holy Child Programme to take a quiet time for the children. A little music and some teaching of relaxation techniques. A successful exercise that produced not a little snoring from some of the children. Then to the L’Arche Community to have a chat and to help make some woollen grottos to sell for Christmas.
Also today to visit a family whose son is blind and receiving great education and care at Al Shurooq School in Beit Jala.
Three fantastic, compassionate places full of hope.
