On the 8th February we celebrated the first anniversary of our operating as a charity caring for the medical, educational and welfare needs of children in crisis in the Holy Land.
Sharing in the pain and sometimes the joy of the children of this troubled area and seeing the resilience, determination and bravery of so many has been such an enormous privilege. Enabled by many fantastic people both in the U.K. and the Holy Land, the charity has now been able to help lift some of these children out of their crises. This has been achieved by listening to the children and their families and working alongside medical, educational and welfare professionals to ensure that we can offer the most practical and appropriate help to those who are in the greatest need.
It is so important, we feel, that we continue to be dedicated to being apolitical and non judgemental - helping children solely on the basis of need and not on the background or faith of the child.
An enormous thank you to all who have contributed with such kindness and generosity to these young people by the giving of time, financially or in any other way. It really has and will continue to make such a positive difference to many lives.

Very many thanks to Rev. Dr. Paul Collins and the people of St. Mary’s Church, Holy Island for such a warm welcome and the opportunity to talk about the charity.
Looking forward now to travelling to Edinburgh on 22nd February to talk at St. Michael and All Saints, Tollcross. It will be good to return to this wonderful church to share more of what is happening with the young people in such need in the Holy Land.

We are very happy to have been invited to talk about the work of ACIC during the morning service at St. Mary’s Church on Holy Island this coming Sunday the 8th February. It will be a year to the day since the charity was founded and it will be good to share with friends the situation of children in crisis in the Holy Land and what so many people over the past year have done to help alleviate some of the problems that the children face.
