We are now back in the UK following a successful three month visit to the Holy Land. All the young people who are part of ACIC were seen in their homes and in some fantastic schools and hospitals. All are receiving the support that is so desperately needed. We are delighted to see much progress - recovery in hospital following such a brave battle with cancer, a new business following hard work and determination, success at final secondary school exams following a great deal of study and great results from those at university. We are so proud of all the young people who, with support, are climbing out of critical situations.
Now that we are back in the UK it is time to try and raise an awareness of the plight of children in crisis in the Holy Land. We were so happy last evening to talk with a lovely group from Norfolk about the situation of the children. In the next few weeks we will also be visiting Darlington and Manchester to talk with other groups to share something of our work and give an update about the children.
At the end of next month, we have fundraising events including an evening with Gervase Phinn, our patron, who will be giving a talk at the castle in Newcastle. We will be publishing details of this shortly.
An enormous thank you to all who support the children - you are making such a great and positive difference to some young lives.
