TURKEY: EARTHQUAKE AREA DIRECTLY ON THE JERUSALEM WAY - WE HELP!
Jerusalem Way Peace Team Launches Fundraiser for Antakya (Antioch) Area Earthquake Victims! The Jerusalem Way brings people together, not only in good times but also in bad times. Through our contacts with the various local institutions and churches, we experience the great misery caused by the strong earthquakes in February in a particularly impressive way. Father Francis from Antakya (ancient biblical Antioch) wants to help the people who have lost everything in the short and long term. The need for help is immense and every euro arrives directly without administrative costs. More info & photos see the Facebook report by the Jerusalem Way pilgrim Birgit Wagner from Munich, who was still there in November 2022!
