2/ Parish Projects for 2024 We have a number of projects & for the next few weeks we’ll  be highlighting them one at a time

British Red Cross Israel and the Occupied Palestinian Territory: a catastrophic humanitarian crisis.  Civilians continue to pay the highest price in this ongoing conflict. In Gaza, the situation is catastrophic. Men, women and children are facing the threat of starvation, and the health system has all but collapsed. In Israel and beyond, families are desperate to receive news of their loved ones still being held hostage and for them to be released.  The UN reports that since 7 October over 36,000 have been killed and over 81,000 injured in Gaza, with over 500 killed and over 5000 injured in the West Bank. Over 1,200 have been also been killed and more than 5,400 injured in Israel.  We’re seeing human suffering on an unprecedented level.
