Bethlehem and the children in the Holy Land

Help for the children of Bethlehem in the Holy Land is a project to promote the personal and social growth of needy children and youth living in the Holy Land and more precisely in Bethlehem. The complex political and economic situation in the Holy Land strikes hard at the many children and adolescents who do not receive an adequate education in Bethlehem and more generally in the whole Holy Land. Many of the children of Bethlehem have troubles at school due to violent and extremely difficult family situations. In many of these Holy Land families, the parents have no income and are burdened with many grave problems.

The ATS pro TERRA SANCTA project “Bethlehem and the children in the Holy Land”

The objective of the project “Bethlehem and the children in the Holy Land” is to support the most fragile of the Christian “living stones” in Bethlehem in the Holy Land: the needy children of this Holy Place, in this very special part of the Holy Land, where God himself became a child. The funds raised will be used to support the education of the neediest children and those with learning problems, in addition to providing them with essential medical care in Bethlehem in the Holy Land.
