After more than 60 years of conflict, many people in Israel and the occupied Palestinian territory are living in fear and poverty.
In our churches and communities, our support for IoPt is often a topic that is difficult to discuss; it polarises and divides people.
Along with our partners, we are deeply committed to, and engaged in, the pursuit of a just peace – for all people – regardless of who they are.
This film seeks to inform, engage, inspire and challenge. Featuring our partners’ work in Israel, the West Bank and Gaza, you’ll learn more about our work to protect human rights, support the poor, and help build a viable peace based on justice for all.
Baha Nababta, the young Palestinian man who features in the beginning of this film, was tragically murdered in May 2016. A tireless campaigner, and community organiser, Baha will be remembered by many for his refusal to abandon hope and optimism, and as somebody who brought positive change to countless people’s lives.
