Visit to Orphanage in Bethelem
Two years ago, our Holy Land Pilgrimage took some pilgrims to an Orphanage in Bethlehem run by the Daughters of Charity. Pilgrims from Brampton were so touched, before leaving for the Holy Land they handed me an envelope with a pretty substantial donation to present the orphanage. This stop was not on our itinerary, but it was well worth the effort. Once we met the sisters and the children, our hearts melted and the rest of the pilgrims added to the donations… what generosity! After the women in our group, cuddled and tickled the children, we had to “peel” away their husbands who were at awe while still playing and laughing with them. The little girl in the pink sleeper giggled and squirmed when tickled. She was so happy!
If anyone would like to send donations from here, please follow the instructions below. Thank you!
Personal checks are hard to cash here and there is a high commission fee on it. A bank transfer is better.
