St. Vincent's Chapel, Edinburgh

We were delighted to be invited to St. Vincent's Chapel in Edinburgh last Sunday and be able to share something of the work of ACIC and the situation of children in critical need in the Holy Land. 

Thank you to all who offered such a warm welcome.

Two years of life on Zoom, FaceTime and Messenger

For us at Abraham's Children in Crisis, the COVID pandemic has meant that we have been unable to be 'on the ground' in the Holy Land caring for the medical, welfare and educational needs of children and young people in critical need. We have spent each day since December 2019 being in contact with the youngsters, their parents or guardians, with our fantastic advisers, with teachers and medical professionals to ensure that the children are receiving the support that they need. 

We have managed, with the enormously kind help of our sponsors to pay all the school, university and medical fees that make it possible for the children to receive a stable education and receive good medical care.

We are looking forward so much to being back in the Holy Land soon listening to those who are in crisis and endeavouring to offer support.

A great thank you to all who have made this continued support possible. Many young lives have been so positively changed because of you.

Events and Thanks

An enormous thank you to Fr. Colin and the people of the churches of St. Anne, Thurso and St. Joachim, Wick who offered such a kind and warm welcome over last weekend. We were able to talk about the situation of the children in the Holy Land for whom we have a care and to say thank you for the ongoing support offered by both churches. The generosity of the folk there was absolutely fantastic and will make such a positive difference to young lives in critical need.

On Monday we headed down to Banff to yet another lovely welcome from Rev. John and Jan Woodside. We are looking forward very much to talking at the Shore Fellowship in Macduff at 7.30pm on Thursday evening and being able to share something of the work of ACIC and the situation of the children with whom we work. Great thanks to Robin Wiseman for his kind invitation to return to his church.

This coming Friday evening we will be giving a talk and concert at Aberdeen's Episcopal Cathedral with wonderful music from the 'Melting Pot Collective and Friends'. 

Thank you to all who have so generously given of themselves financially, with their time or offered such kind hospitality. All of this goes towards lifting children out of crisis and giving hope.

Making a difference

We are delighted to report that all the children have been visited in their schools, hospitals and homes and are really benefitting from the support being offered. Fees have now been paid until the end of the academic year 2020 which will ensure a secure continuity of education in both schools and universities. An enormous thank you to all who so generously give both of their time and financially. It is continuing to make such a positive difference to these young lives.

Talks and Events

We are really delighted to have been invited to give talks over the next few months to help raise an awareness of the educational, medical and welfare needs of children in crisis in the Holy Land. Alongside these talks we are also in the process of arranging social and musical events to help us raise funds to support the children.

We feel it so important that we continue in our support and care for children in crisis so that there may be hope in areas where hope is so elusive. 

We will be travelling to the north of Scotland, Norfolk, Greater Manchester, Durham and Great Missenden to see old friends and to hopefully make new friends. We will keep you updated about dates and locations.
