Groups working for peace in Palestine

Wi’am Conflict Resolution Centre is a Christian project based in Bethlehem, which is helping to bring reconciliation to the Palestinian community. The occupation and lack of freedoms increases family and community breakdowns. Wi’am means ‘cordial relationships’ in Arabic and Wi'am believes that "helping people resolve their personal conflicts helps to preserve Palestinian society and people’s faith in non-violent possibilities’. Wi'am runs counselling and reconciliation services for all ages.  It also supports groups for young people, children, older people and women.

The Holy Land Trust runs community outreach programmes in Bethlehem and the surrounding area to strengthen communities in the face of adversity. It runs workshops for local leaders, young people and community groups and produces resources promoting non-violent resistance. 

Israeli Committee Against House Demolition UK  ICAHD UK works to raise awareness in the UK and EU of the illegal demolition of homes in the West Bank by the Israeli authority.  It encourages UK and EU citizens to take action to stop this illegal activity. 

Why not Google them and find out more about the work they are doing and also look at the Pathfinder notice board in the Church Hall.
