A letter from our brothers and sisters at the American Friends of the Episcopal Diocese of Jerusalem.


“Gaza is still under siege. All borders are closed. In Gaza’s crisis, Ahli Hospital is a place of refuge and hope. Everyone who comes to Ahli for help is equal. We are living Christian values every day. People know this. They know that at Ahli they will be treated with dignity and respect. We are so thankful for your generous support of our mission.”
— Suhaila Tarazi, Ahli Hospital’s Director


Dear Friends,

I just returned from a trip to Gaza. I visited three Community Based Organizations that work in the poorest neighborhoods of Gaza, identifying families who need medical care and arranging treatment for them at Ahli Hospital’s Free Community Clinic.

The clinic serves the poorest of the poor in Gaza, one of the most desperate places on earth. The conditions I saw people living in is appalling. No clean drinking water, raw sewage polluting the water and land, and for most families, just two hours of electricity every day. Yet the Palestinian people living in this political tinderbox remain hopeful for their future.

Ahli Hospital needs your help. Your gift of any size will help keep open the doors of Ahli Hospital’s Free Community Clinic and continue to provide life-saving care to the desperate families and children living in Gaza.

When I was in Gaza I spoke with Suhaila Tarazi, Ahli Hospital’s Director. Suhaila told me, “Gaza is still under siege. All borders are closed. In Gaza’s crisis, Ahli Hospital is a place of refuge and hope. Everyone who comes to Ahli for help is equal. We are living Christian values every day. People know this. They know that at Ahli they will be treated with dignity and respect. We are so thankful for your generous support of our mission.”

Please visit our special Ahli Hospital Campaign website. Watch the video and you’ll see why this campaign is so important and urgent.

Our goal is to raise $20,000. Only with your help can the clinic continue to care for the families and children of Gaza, who are traumatized by war and the appalling conditions they live in. Thank you for your gift. Thank you for bringing hope to Gaza.

John Lent
Vice President
