Palestine: Pontifical Mission launches housing project for Christian families

The project of the Pontifical Mission in collaboration with ATS Pro Terra Sancta, with the support of the Dutch Knights of the Holy Sepulcher has allowed several Christian families to enjoy living in a renovated home.

"I want to express my profound thanks to the Church, for helping us when we were under pressure."

"This house was worth zero, now its value has increased a thousand times! When I come to think of it, I can appreciate the quality of the renovation.”

"Thanks so much! I hope you can continue to help the needy and the last. Thanks."

“Thanks” is the most frequent word on the lips and faces of the Palestinian Christians who were the recipients of the service carried out through the latest project created by the ATS Pro Terra Sancta-Custody, in collaboration with the Pontifical Mission and the support of the Dutch Knights of the Holy Sepulcher. So far, as of September 1, 19 needy families in the West Bank have been able to effectuate restoration work at their home.

Rudolph Saadeh, project coordinator of the Pontifical Mission in Jerusalem said:
"Our job is to help the Church and its institutions to become available to serve their parishioners, that is the Christians in the area of Bethlehem. We tried to reach as many families as possible in the cities of Bethlehem, Beit Jala and Beit Sahour. We helped needy families who lived in homes that needed renovations that they could not afford. The younger families are usually the most disadvantaged ones.”
