A Visit to Wadi Foquin

Community Development Project

Wadi Fukin is a small Muslim agriculture village located along "the green line," Israeli's 1948 border, and a huge illegal settlement.

This community is one of the Advance Projects through the General Board of Global Ministries.  United Methodists have been involved in the renovation of a community center.

Donations for this center are tax exempt and may be made at search for project # 3021565.  Many projects are underway at the center including training women in business management and assisting in the development of income generating products.

Rev. Kristen Brown and I enjoyed seeing the wonderful park the villagers built for their children.
