Any hope for Palestine, now or ever?

25 September, 2018

The Palestine Israel Ecumenical Network is facilitating the Australian speaking tour of Areej Masoud during October.

Areej Masoud is a Palestinian Christian from Bethlehem who currently works as the Development & Communications Department Coordinator at Bethlehem Bible College. Areej is impassioned to speak up on behalf of her people and introduce the world to her reality, often hidden from mainstream media. A reality where access to basic necessities such as healthcare, education, water, shelter, freedom of movement and economic security is greatly restricted.
