The churches located on the site of Christ’s Baptism are finally being cleared of landmines after sitting empty and abandoned for 50 years.
In a rare example of multi-faith collaboration in the Middle East, The HALO Trust began to clear explosive debris from the site shortly before Holy Week 2018. The project has the support of the Israeli and Palestinian authorities and local faith leaders.
HALO is now seeking to raise the last remaining $125,000 of $1.15 million needed to complete clearance by Christmas 2018. The project has been funded to date by the Government of Israel, a range of Christian churches, philanthropists and the public.Help clear the Baptism site
