Video: our Christmas campaign kicks off, with a new opportunity

Bethlehem is synonymous with Christmas: with its lights, its feasts, the joy of this small Palestinian village is proclaimed throughout the whole world. But Christmas also means having to focus on the reality of everyday hardships: it means going beyond the stones of the holy places and broadening our vision to include the Holy Land’s Living Stones. Thus began the “Christmas in Bethlehem” campaign promoted by the Pro Terra Sancta Association, the NGO of the Franciscan Custody of the Holy Land.

This Christmas you have a new opportunity to support the poor of Bethlehem. You can sponsor one of the children of the city where Jesus was born and offer him/her a better present and future.

Discover more about child sponsorship with Association pro Terra Sancta!
