Do you work with, or volunteer with refugees from the Middle East? If so, Bridges for Communities would like to invite you to join us on a trip to Jordan!
 
The aim of the trip is to experience the Middle East first hand – the people, the culture, and the language – in order to help us better understand the lives and journeys of the refugees we are working with and how that impacts their expectations and experiences of life in the UK.
 
The dates of the trip are Saturday 21st March – Saturday 28th March 2020. 
 
 The trip will include:
• Meetings with leaders of refugee organisations and visits to refugee communities in Jordan – specifically UNHCR centres / refugee camp
• Meetings with local people to experience their culture and lives
• Arabic culture & language sessions
• Sightseeing  - Petra, Dead Sea, Mount Nebo and the sights of the old city in Amman including amphitheatre and citadel. (Option to stay longer and visit Wadi Rum / Aqaba).

Bethlehem Olive Harvest - Oct 2020

12/10/2020 - 20/10/2020
£750 + flights
Bethlehem Olive Harvest - Oct 2020

Please note - this event was previously advertised for 2019 but has been postponed until 2020.

Visit the Holy Land. Meet the People. Learn from the Peacemakers. Contribute in a practical way.

Working in partnership with the Holy Land Trust in Bethlehem, Bridges is again offering the chance for people from the UK to spend a week in October 2020 helping Palestinian farmers to harvest their olives. This is a great way to build awareness of the challenges that people living in the Holy Land face, and to contribute in a simple but practical way towards an important part of their way of life.

Experience climbing to the top of an ancient olive tree to pick the last of the olives, explore some of the sights of the Holy Land, savour some wonderful Middle eastern food, and make new friends as you share this wonderful experience together!
