A Children’s Hospital in Palestine

There is no end to the bad news coming from the West Bank. But in Betlehem, in the middle of the Holy Land, there is an oasis of hope. This refers to a children’s hospital, which was set up by Father Ernst Schnydrig, from Switzerland. Local and foreign employees work harmoniously together in this hospital: Muslims and Christians, women and men, young and old. For decades they have been setting an example of what is so urgently needed in the West Bank: love, tolerance, respect, peaceful resolution of conflicts, understanding for different views of life and other religions.
