We are a small charity with big ambitions to establish and maintain hospice care for elderly and terminally ill people in Bethlehem.
When the elderly and terminally ill people of Bethlehem reach the end of their lives, they have nowhere to turn.
We believe that everyone deserves dignity, care and help to manage pain at the end of their life. That’s why our mission is to raise enough funds to establish the city’s first ever hospice.
Please help to raise the funds we need to establish our hospice in Bethlehem. We are a small charity and we really appreciate any donations, offers of volunteering or support with fundraising.
Cardinal Arthur Roche
Prefect of the Congregation for Divine Worship and the Discipline of the Sacraments.
“The enterprise of the Bethlehem Care & Hospice Trust speaks of everything that is at the very heart of the Good News of Jesus Christ. Being as it is such a practical response to help in a situation of great need I sincerely hope that it will encourage many to be alongside you as through you Christ’s own hand is offered in the care of the sick and the dying.”
Rt Reverend John Keenan
Bishop of Paisley, Scotland
“The care of the sick and the dying especially those most in need are amongst the most precious aims of the Gospel. To do so in Bethlehem the place of the Lord’s birth is a welcome reminder that when we act with mercy to the least among us we do so to him. Amid today’s troubles in the Holy Land, the sick, the dying and the poor in Bethlehem are especially close to the heart of the Church. I am very happy to support this special project”
Rt Reverend Ralph Heskett
C.Ss.R. Bishopof Hallam, Sheffield
“We are seeking to support and make permanent a Care and Repair Centre in Bethlehem which would help service the needs of the local elderly women and men, provide a social network for them, nutrition services, basic health care and a sense that they are still valued as members of their society and are not forgotten.”
