To all friends of Jeel al Amal

I remember one of the first meetings with Alice and Basil in “Dar al Awlad: House of Boys”, a few months after the Six Day War.

During the day Alice takes care of the boys and Basil goes to the nearby school where he teaches. There is poverty in the Jerusalem area, and Dar al Awlad is no exception. They have nothing to eat for the boys. In desperation Basil says to Alice that she must expel the boys. “Where will they go? They have no home”, replies Alice.

That day a passing stranger asks what kind of home this is. Alice tells their story. “Here is one hundred US dollar. Soon you will get more.” He presses the money in her hand and disappears. As Basil comes home, he hears the sound of all the boys. They are still there. Alice puts the one hundred dollar on the table. Basil asks: “How do you get that?” Alice replies: “Our Lord has thrown it over the wall”.
