In Bethlehem with the last
This Christmas, due to the conflict, many already isolated cities are confronted with the absence of pilgrims and the inevitable increase in unemployment and poverty. In this situation, it is children and vulnerable people who suffer the most serious consequences, often finding themselves abandoned and defenseless.
The last of the last
When tourists and pilgrims come to visit Bethlehem of Judea, that eight-meter-high separation wall , seems lower; for a moment it seems to be able to go back to living a normal life made up of meetings, life exchanges, a breath of fresh air for the women and men of the city of Christmas.
Today, as was the case during the Covid-19 pandemic, Bethlehem is once again isolated. With her are all the cities of the West Bank, which today are once again having to deal with a very serious economic crisis, which has already been underway for several years, and with a social crisis due to isolation and continuous violence.
With a further aggravating circumstance: those who had used their savings to cope with the Covid emergency, today have nothing.
Everyone in Bethlehem suffers from this situation, but among them those who suffer the most are children and those who already live in isolation due to physical or mental disabilities.
