UMCOR has received a request from the Shepherd Society in Bethlehem to provide assistance to Palestinians who are suffering severe economic hardship because of the ongoing violence and the closures.

Please support these efforts by giving to UMCOR's Middle East Emergency, Advance #601740-2, and please pray for peace and wisdom in the midst of the escalating violence.
