Christmas is coming: a big party for the elderly of Bethlehem!

Music, dancing, sweets, bingo…and countless smiles: nothing was lacking at the Christmas party held in the home for the elderly managed by the Società Antoniana in Bethlehem.

Older people frequently alone, abandoned and without resources who, thanks to the Gianelline sisters and the support of ATS pro Terra Sancta and numerous friends and donors, are able to lead a dignified life and experience the serenity appropriate to this period of their life.

We leave you with these pictures, of joy and celebration, and we send you from Bethlehem our best wishes for Christmas!
