We have been clearing minefields in the West Bank since 2014. During this time we have built trust across religious and cultural divides and gained the approval of the Israelis, Palestinians and all the churches to clear landmines at the Site of the Baptism of Christ.
Known as Qaser al-Yahud, the Baptism Site on the West Bank of the River Jordan was mined during the 1967 Six Day War, leaving the eight churches located here inaccessible for over half a century.
Last year we began work to make this very special place safe so the churches can become places of worship once again. Learn more about the Baptism Site here.
