URGENT Christmas Appeal

Our Christmas 2019 appeal was an urgent response to Jeel Al Amal boys home in Bethany because it has been 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 had not been paid for two months and we didn’t want to see the future of the home put in jeopardy.

We have been able to encourage Najwa and her team as we have now raised over £30,000. As we have also received some large pledges we can help them with ongoing monthly expenses.

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 or send cheque payable to McCabe Educational Trust. 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 because NO deduction for administration is made. 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.
