May 2017 Thank You to CNT
CNT has donated £1,500 to the Latin Patriarchate Summer Camps, demonstrating CNT commitment to this invaluable project.
On May 24th, Charles Guilbert-Roed, Head of LPJ Project Development wrote:
“On behalf of Fr Imad, I thank you for your e-mail and your dedication to the Holy Land. I will confirm your donation of £1,500 as soon as we receive it.
Indeed, there is a need for summer programs that focus on spiritual, educational and recreational skills for parishes serving low-income communities in impoverished areas as well as areas of conflict. Our children and youth need to be involved in programs that provide activities to support them throughout the summer break.”
Volunteering for a Summer Camp
This is an experience of a life-time — helping, learning and so enriching. Read about the experiences of some of those forty five volunteers who, with some financial support from the Trust, went to Palestine between 2011 and 2014 to participate in LPJ parish Summer Camps. These camps keep children, and indeed the whole parish, occupied during the long hot summer months when poverty and Israeli travel restrictions make it impossible for families to travel and enjoy a summer holiday.

In 2015, CNT gave £5,000 towards the cost of summer camps run by LPJ parishes in Palestine and Jordan.
