Episcopal Diocese of Jerusalem-July 2015 newsletter

Greetings from Bishop Suheil Dawani

Dear Friends,

During July of last year the Gaza strip has endured a deadly and destructive war which lasted for almost two months.

In recognition to the outstanding work of our staff in Al Ahli Arab Hospital (AAH), we would like to dedicate this edition of the Diocesan newsletter to those staff for their courage, commitment, hard work and service during the war and beyond.

Ms Suhaila Tarazi and her senior management team have done wonders!


You will be able to read about some important activities in which these staff members have accomplished throughout the past twelve months; first with the humanitarian intervention during the war and then the recovery and rehabilitation activities that took place the months following. After presenting you with some accounts and memoires of our staff, we would like you to meet some of our beneficiaries; those who God called us to serve and whose lives have been changed as a result of the ministry of AAH.

This ministry would not have been possible without the generous support of friends, partners, Dioceses and churches, and individuals. Programs and Projects would not have been complete without their immediate response to our appeals.

God has abundantly blessed us and blessed our ministry in Gaza because of these partners and friends.

We urge you to continue praying for the people of Gaza and our ministry there.

Pray that Al Ahli Arab Hospital continues to be a peace and healing haven to all those who enter it. Pray that our ministry continues to bring hope to those people, not only physically but also emotionally.

Finally, pray for peace and justice in Gaza and across our region.

Salaam, Peace

+Bp. Suheil Dawani
