No Child Should Suffer – Support ABM’s TAx appeal
ABM’s 2017 Tax Appeal supports the Child Nutrition project based at the Al Ahli Arab Hospital in Gaza. Parents and children are benefiting from this assistance in Beit Hanoun, a poor area of Gaza, near the Israeli border that was hit hard in the 2014 bomb attacks. Since the attacks, ABM’s partner, the Al Ahli Arab Hospital – a medical facility of the Anglican Diocese of Jerusalem – has continued to help children restore and maintain their health. The Child Nutrition Program seeks to build health profiles for children and help families that are struggling to cope. Over the course of three months, children are given a medical assessment by an expert paediatrician and a program of nutritional supplements is developed. The hospital provides the necessary supplements and monitors the children for signs of improvement. Please consider a tax-deductible gift before June 30 so children on the Gaza Strip can continue to receive quality care and nutrition support. Go to https://www.abmission.org/appeals
Please advise the Rector immediately of people seeking confirmation.
