Amos Trust’s Christmas appeal for 2019 is for the Peace builders of Palestine, for our partners NECC in Gaza and Holy Land Trust in Bethlehem. For the hope they bring through their vocational training for young people in Gaza and by rebuilding homes destroyed by the Israeli military on the West Bank.
NECC Training Centre in Gaza City offers psychosocial support and vocational training to the young people of Gaza — the innocent victims of three wars since 2009 – giving them an irresistible hope for the future. NECC, Gaza (Near East Council of Churches), is engaged in humanitarian work to support Palestinian refugees in Gaza, particularly disadvantaged youth, women and other vulnerable groups.
Specialist mentoring and psychological support are given to all students, which are essential to help them not only to complete and succeed in their training courses, but also to develop as individuals and cope with the isolation of everyday life in Gaza.
Holy Land Trust
Holy Land Trust's community outreach team works tirelessly to strengthen communities and help local people unite in acts of non-violent resistance against the occupation.
They enable creative programmes and projects — both locally and globally — that foster understanding, healing and empowerment of individuals and communities affected by the Israeli occupation.
Amos Trust has partnered with Holy Land Trust in an ongoing programme that has seen the rebuilding of five homes in the West Bank that had been destroyed by the Israeli military.
