The Catholic Women’s League (C.W.L.) of Canada and CNEWA are working together to support Christians in the Holy Land.
Velma Harasen, C.W.L. Honorary Life Member, visited the Holy Land in 2010. Her eyes were opened to the struggles of local Christians, and she came back to Canada compelled to act. That is how Velma’s Dream was born.
Two projects are being supported. The Infant Welfare Centre in Jerusalem provides critical support to at-risk teenagers for them to stay in school. The Shepherd’s Field Hospital in Beit Sahour provides health care to the poorest mothers and babies, near Bethlehem where Jesus was born.
Velma’s Dream ensures that compassion, reconciliation and the loving face of Christ are present in a region that needs peace so badly.
We invite Catholic Women’s League members and the public at large to donate today.
To give to Velma’s Dream, you can send your cheque to CNEWA Canada at 1247 Kilborn Place, Ottawa, ON K1H 6K9 (for “CWL Projects”). You can also call 1-866-322-4441 or donate online.
