The Nazareth Trust (the operating name of EMMS Nazareth)

EMMS Nazareth works in Nazareth, providing primary health care, education, social enterprise and Christian service. It seeks to address the challenges of the region through integration, cooperation and delivery of key services with the love and compassion taught by Jesus.

Story

Hey folks! I was a medical student in Nazareth Hospital back in 1993, and this little Arab-Israeli city made a major impact on me. Such wonderful people, and the most dedicated healthcare staff. Although founded as a Christian mission hospital, the staff and patients come from many backgrounds - all religions and none - in a region that sure could use a little mutual understanding. I believe in the power of healthcare to heal not only physical ailments, but communities affected by conflict and division. I've seen it work in Northern Ireland - it can work in Israel and Palestine too.

The Dialysis Unit gives vital life-saving treatment to patients with renal failure, and it provides a lifeline for people who would otherwise have to travel to Haifa or Tel Aviv for treatment. Last year the Nazareth Riders collectively raised £50,000 for the Paediatric Unit, and we hope, with your help, to do even better this year.

Donating through JustGiving is simple, fast and totally secure. Your details are safe with JustGiving - they'll never sell them on or send unwanted emails. Once you donate, they'll send your money directly to the charity. So it's the most efficient way to donate - saving time and cutting costs for the charity. And, of course, I am paying for all my expenses, so all your money goes to the appeal.
