A week of education, prayer and action for peace in Palestine & Israel, initiated by the World Council of Churches.
Youth and children are the ones who suffer the most in conflicts and under occupation.
They are also the ones who will hold the future of Palestine and Israel in their hands, the ones we pray will grow up with peace and prosperity.
Resources and details of events from around the country are available from Pax Christi UK
