Accompaniment Training at Ansche Chesed

Join Ansche Chesed and The New Sanctuary Committee (NSC) for an Accompaniment Training.

Postcard Writing for Syrian Refugees

Now in its eighth year, the Syrian crisis has left more than 500,000 dead. There are 5.6 million Syrian refugees registered in neighboring countries; and 6.6 million internally displaced people. One of the most brutal aspects of the crisis has been the deliberate targeting of the medical infrastructure — the bombing of hospitals and killing of doctors.
