Story

Thanks for your visit! I'm working with my friends to raise money for the Paediatric Department in Nazareth EMMS Hospital. This place means a great deal to me. As a medical student in 1993 I spent two months here, getting to know the people and the region, and the complex politics in Israel/Palestine.

But I really fell in love with Nazareth - the sights, sounds, smells, tastes, and especially the wonderful people. Nazareth gives everyone a warm welcome, and the hospital treats everyone, whether Christian, Muslim, Jewish or Atheist. I firmly believe that health care is a force for peace in the world, and if we can show the next generation that we care, perhaps - just perhaps - we can help bring an end to the strife that has plagued this historic and beautiful land.

I'm blogging about this (and other things) over at AnswersInGenes - come along and have a look.
