Peace Committee Meeting: Staff reflection from time in Israel & Palestine

February 9, 2017 @ 7:00 pm - 8:30 pm

Andrea Koverman, SC, will share a reflection of her time in Israel and Palestine.  Andrea and two other colleagues visited Israel and Palestine through HOPE (Holy Land Outreach Promoting Education). Their mission included visiting Jordan where they met Fr. Khalil Ja’ar, Iraqi refugee families including some of the children, who are enrolled in the refugee camp in Marka. In Bethlehem, they visited Hogar Nino Dios, a home for abandoned and disabled children and  the Aida Refugee camp. They shared information about a program called TLC (Trauma Loss in Children) and offered suggestions for emotional behavioral accommodations and modifications. Also water filters, donated by the Sisters of Charity, were brought to the refugee camps. One filter provides clean water for 5 families for 10 years and all that is needed is a bucket.

This is instead of the normal monthly Peace Committee meeting.
