Sandra Horne and Peter Hughes share their recent experiences as volunteer human rights monitors with the Ecumenical Accompaniment Programme in Palestine and Israel.
The Ecumenical Accompaniment Programme in Palestine and Israel (EAPPI), brings volunteers from all over the world to act as human rights observers and witness life under Israeli occupation in the West Bank. It is a programme of the World Council of Churches and engages with local Palestinians and Israelis pursuing a just peace. The Programme’s aim is to change the international community’s involvement in the conflict, and to urge for action against injustice in the region.
The programme in the United Kingdom and Ireland is managed by Quaker Peace & Social Witnesss and Churches Together in Britain and Ireland.
