Jerusalem, Stones of memory in the Holy land
- This project is part of a larger program launched by the Custody of the Holy Land with the aim of providing aid to the poorest families. The project has a positive direct influence on many Christian families who have no income and contributes to safeguarding their presence in Holy Lands and in Jerusalem.
A program is underway thanks to the initial contribution from the Lombardia Region. This entails the securing, renovating and improvement of the sanitary conditions of various buildings belonging to Terra Sancta in the Old City of Jerusalem.
The Custody owns around 400 habitable units within the city walls of the Old City of Jerusalem which are rented almost rent-free to poor families.
In the first phase of the project, urgent restoration work has been done, concentrating on the hygiene aspect in some houses so that people can live there with dignity and feel no need to abandon the Old City. However, so far these works have not been very systematic.
For this reason, a detailed plan is currently being written up by using up-to-date technology and planning methods, in order to improve monitoring, surveys, restoration and architectural conservation of the housing development and public buildings belonging to the Custody of the Holy Land within the walls of the Old City of Jerusalem.
