Who's Who? Christian/Muslim? Arabic/English?

our aim is to support children in crisis

based solely on need

regardless of faith

sometimes smiles hide much trauma!

Thank you

The journey around England, Scotland and Wales over the past few weeks has now come to an end. The kindness and generosity of those I have met has been absolutely fantastic. I have had the opportunity to talk with so many about the plight of children in crisis in the Holy Land and have received such warm welcome from all I have met.

We would like to offer our enormous thanks to all our friends who have listened and contributed so generously to the welfare of the children. This has now made it possible to help more young people and to try and lift them out of the crises in which they find themselves.

Huge thanks to Rev.

A very special thanks to Steven Shorrocks who is in the process of creating a short DVD including messages from the pupils of Banff Academy to the children who are supported by ACIC.
