Salsabeel's difficult journey

Dec 06, 2012, 06:14 PM

In the run up to Christmas, as churches start holding Advent services and we begin to hear carols everywhere we go, many of us are thinking about a difficult journey through Biblical lands. Ten-year-old Salsabeel lives in today’s West Bank, and makes a painful journey to East Jerusalem three times a week to receive critical medical care. Nothing should stand between a seriously ill little girl and the medical services she needs. Yet Palestinian Salsabeel faces many barriers to treatment because of the Israeli occupation. Listen to this podcast to be carried along on Salsabeel’s long journey with her, and visit www.christianaid.org/christmas to find out more about her story and download Christmas resources. #Israel #Palestine #IOPT #WestBank #Jerusalem #PHR #health #rights
