We support health education in the West Bank and Gaza where it can be difficult to get medical attention due to poverty, travel restrictions, and checkpoints in the occupied Palestinian territories.
The focus of this programme is on health education and screening of school students in Gaza, where the focus is on hygiene and psychosocial counselling, and the West Bank, where we concentrate on nutrition and hygiene. The programme aims to detect and treat diseases in primary school children and to support health education, concentrating on nutrition, oral health, personal hygiene and psychosocial counselling.
The Peace Lamp project aims to raise awareness and pray for peace in the Holy Land. Read about it here.
