Palestine marathon update
We are pleased to announce that David Longe, Chaplain in the Diocese of Jerusalem, and his brother Will, successfully completed their runs in the Palestine marathon and 10k race. Even more impressive is that they have already raised an amazing £1,700 for the Ahli Arab Hospital in Gaza, with more funds streaming in all the time.
Friday’s marathon David made a visit to Gaza and to the Ahli Arab Hospital and reported back:
I write, now back at work, after having just been into Gaza and seeing some of the patients in the Hospital. On hand cancer treatment is critical and the Hospital's plan to provide cancer treatment will be a lifeline to so many. The Archbishop met a patient whose breast cancer is spreading – and who needs urgent treatment. Sadly, we know she may not be given a permit to leave Gaza to get care she so desperately needs. In the UK we take the NHS for granted; here every glimmer of hope is needed and held on to with prayers that help will come... one day.
