She will share her experiences and talk about the hard reality of the normalization of the Israeli occupation of Palestine. With the turmoil of unresolved wars in Syria and the Yemen we rarely hear about the harsh existence of life in the West Bank. Come and learn about what our church partner, Wi’am: The Palestinian Conflict Resolution Centre, is doing to respond to the current crisis and the trauma created by the occupation.
