To all friends of Jeel al Amal

In this volume you will find short stories about life in Jeel al Amal and the announcement of a sponsored walk around the old city of Jerusalem.

“I spent the best years of my life in Jeel”
A couple of weeks ago there was a very nice encounter with one of the alumni of Jeel al Amal who is now studying for his masters degree in international law. He stood there surrounded by children and told them:
“When I was a small boy I was in Jeel al Amal, where I spent the best years of my life. Not so long ago I was in the same position that you are in right now. I was an orphan without mother or father, but look where I am now. I pray to God that, with good education, you will achieve the same as me. My mother Alice gave me a chance in this life by educating me to be good for my people, my country and everyone around me. That means: making yourself useful”.
What a beautiful way of expressing what future can hold in store for the boys at Jeel al Amal.

“I love Jeel so much”
One afternoon not so long ago I was at Jeel for the study groups. I noticed a boy standing near the wall with a bag in front of him and tears in his eyes. I asked him: “What’s the matter?” He said: “I am going to stay with my mother for a couple of days”, so I asked him: “And that’s the way someone who is going to visit his mother looks like?” The boy said: “But I love Jeel so much that I don’t want to leave”. I told him that we loved him too, but that his mother had every right to see him for a couple of days. This is how strongly children feel for Jeel. Very special. Their feelings are so pure.

“Jerusalem Trinity Sponsored Walk”
Dear Najwa, in January we are gathering a group of supporters to visit Jerusalem for five nights. We are hoping for a party of between 50 and 100 participants. Our theme is Trinity and the main feature will be a sponsored walk three times around the old city at Saturday 28 January 2012. All money raised will be divided between three projects: BASR, Al Shurooq and Jeel al Amal. During the week the group will make a visit to each project raising awareness of your need.
Full details are on our website click on McCabe Educational Trust on the menu bar. If you click on the “Sponsor” button, you can see the electronic system we have set up to collect donations. This donations page can be copied by anyone and attached to any website. We are hoping that individual participants will do this. This is just to let you know what we are planning.

With best regards
