URGENT Christmas Appeal

This Christmas we are responding to an urgent appeal from Jeel Al Amal boys home in Bethany. Please do help if you can, they are going through a financial crisis.

McCabe Educational Trust is committed to the long term support of this mixed school and Boys’ Home where Najwa Sahhar continues the work begun by her parents more than 35 years ago.

Jeel al Amal does not receive any Government support and McCabe pilgrims are the charity’s main benefactors. Salaries have not been paid for two months and we would hate to see the future of the home put in jeopardy.

We would like to encourage Najwa with a Christmas gift of £30,000 which would cover the costs of the Boys Home for two months. Your gift, large or small, will make a difference.

£8 will pay for one child for one day
£56 will pay for one child for one week
£248 will pay for one child for one month
£2,920 will pay for one child for one year

To donate, call us with a debit card, send a cheque payable to McCabe Educational Trust or donate online on our JustGiving page. Please do consider a regular payment by standing order. Contact us and we will send you a form.


Every penny of every donation to the McCabe Educational Trust is passed on to the recipient with NO deduction for administration. All of the administrative costs of the trust are fully covered by McCabe Pilgrimages. With your help we will continue to help those in need we encounter on our travels.
