Trekking Palestine

XXXX

XXXXX

David and Marilyn Woodhead recently walked in Palestine to raise money for MAP (Medical Aid for Palestinians). This

Their talk will explain how they came to be supporters of Palestinians and undertook this 100km trek through the West Bank.

You will also hear about George Abdo, a son of Nablus. He is a remarkable, humble man who despite overwhelming difficulties spent his life helping others and never looking for recognition.

Six Day War testimonies from Nablus

Booklet cover

It is 50 years since the Six Day War of 1967, the invasion of Nablus and the start of an occupation which continues to this day.

The invasion was a terrifying experience for the people of Nablus. We asked six people to recall their memories of that time - they make very moving and compelling testimonies.

Our booklet with these testimonies is now available online
