Mission and Service partners are currently responding to those who are impacted by the conflict in West Bank and East Jerusalem. Partners are prepared to expand their activity into Gaza when a humanitarian corridor is opened, allowing for safe access to provide relief. Currently, there is an urgent need for food, as well as non-food items such as medicines, psychosocial support, and shelter.
We are working with Mission and Service partners ACT Alliance and Department of Service to Palestinian Refugees (DSPR). As a member of the Canadian Foodgrains Bank, we are also working with the Humanitarian Coalition to provide tangible support for the people of the Middle East.
Your help is urgently needed. Please take a few minutes out of your day to support the ACT Alliance and Mission and Service partners in Palestine and Israel responding to the urgent needs of civilians in Palestine and Israel. Here's how you can act today:
Pray for peace with justice for the people of Palestine and Israel. As people of faith, we bring the grief, compassion and concerns of a hurting world to God. Additional prayers can be found here and at Canadian Council of Churches.
