Show Notes

During my June podcast break between season 2 and 3 you can listen to three episodes I made for PAX Palestine Podcast. 

PAX is a peace organization based in the Netherlands. 

PAX works together with committed citizens and partners to protect civilians against acts of war, to end armed violence, and to build a just peace. 

In Palestine PAX supports local partners in building resilient communities, promoting human security and equality in the political, cultural and social domain, and in fighting the injustices resulting from the protracted occupation.

The PAX Palestine Podcast features interviews with some of the local Palestinian partners of PAX. 

In Area C in the West Bank PAX supports a resilience project of Danish Church Aid and the Church of Sweden together with East Jerusalem YMCA. Emphasizing the resources that are available, the project works with various Area C communities on forming protection groups, identifying and addressing community needs, by mobilizing available resources and offering small cash grants.

In this episode we speak with George Zeidan and Mai Jarrar about their resilience project in the South Hebron Hills.
