The children of Bethlehem

If history, genealogy and Leith are about anything its about families and that is why I have included this appeal on the site. They need our help are we really going to turn our backs on them.

Christian Aid Appeal 2004

If there’s anyone on earth who needs hope this Christmas, it’s the children of Bethlehem.

Despite the cosy images we see on Christmas cards, Bethlehem today is caught in a spiral of violence, fear and poverty.

It’s a broken town full of children like Jessica Safar, who dream of an end to their suffering.

When she was given a doll, Jessica removed its eye, saying: ‘like me, like her.’ But after counsellors from the Christian Aid-funded YMCA helped her, she felt less angry.
