The Four Homes of Mercy in Jerusalem

The “The Four Homes of Mercy” centre at the Mount of Olives (al-Asariyeh) in Jerusalem looks after physically as well as mentally impaired children and maintains a residential home each for men and women. On a visit to the centre in 1994 I noted that many essential items were missing, items such as night tables, wheelchairs and walking frames.

On my return to Cologne I contacted local hospitals and old peoples’ homes and was thus able to gather a number of discarded items such as night tables, wheelchairs, bath chairs, walking frames, beds, bed linen etc. I was able to send these to Jerusalem by container, too.
