|Al Ahli Hospital, Gaza: A project of the Anglican Diocese of Jerusalem and the Middle East|
Christian Aid is the relief and development agency sponsored by the major non-Roman Catholic UK Churches, Anglican, Methodist, Orthodox, Reformed, Baptist, Independent and others. It works in close alliance with CAFOD, the Roman Catholic relief and development agency. Former Archbishop of Canterbury, Dr Rowan Williams, is presently the chairman of the Christian Aid board. This diocese in Europe has partnered with Christian Aid, most recently in raising funds for an education project for Afghan women and girls, through our Lent Appeal.
I quote the statement below, in full. The Christian Aid website is here. A resource with prayers, readings and intercessions for the Gaza crisis can be found on their site here.
The Anglican Diocese of Jerusalem and the Middle East has a presence in Gaza, including running the Al-Ahli hospital. Like the other hospitals in Gaza, Al-Ahli hospital is experiencing severe shortages in medicine, fuel for electrical generators, food for patients, and food parcels for many in the community seeking this help. The Diocese of Jerusalem and the Middle East have launched an appeal for the hospital. Details can be found here.
