A centre of hope in the heart of Bethlehem
For many years, the separation wall has kept the population of Bethlehem semi-confined. The restriction of movement has generated depression, discomfort, discouragement, leading to a climate of heavy social tension, which in turn leads to increased violence especially among youth; tension is also growing now due to COVID lockdown.
The Dar Al Majus (in Arab, House of the Three Kings) will benefit the local community and will directly impact more than 600 vulnerable community members (youth, women, mothers, children) per year by providing vocational training, employment, and entrepreneurship support, and/or psycho-social support, including music therapy sessions and referral services.
Here’s what has been done and what we still need to accomplish ⇓
After the property was acquired, we provided for the cleaning of the entire building that had been abandoned for many years. These works created job opportunities for local workers.
Local architects and designers where involved to carry out surveys and design the project for the renovation and distribution of spaces where the activities of the center will take place.
The project for the new center was completed and approved by all the competent authorities and by the Custos of the Holy Land, Father Francesco Patton.
All is set to start the renovation works! Help us start!
