We're doing it again! This time we are biking from Petra in Jordan up to Nazareth in Israel, to raise money for the Nazareth Hospital Dialysis Unit. Last year we raised over £50,000 for the Children's Unit! Nazareth is the largest Arab town in Israel; the people are lovely, and the kids are awesome. Nazareth also treats kids in the West Bank of Palestine who have very limited access to healthcare. They need your help! Go to my sponsorship page to find out more and see what you can do! Maybe even join us..? http://justgiving.com/shanenaz

Sponsor me to Cycle the Galilee for Nazareth Hospital

Stubborn to the last. Jordan Valley, 2009.

Nazareth is the largest Arab town in Israel, and home to its largest Christian community. Its hospital is the oldest in the country, founded by the remarkable Dr P.K. Vartan from Constantinople in the days of Ottoman Palestine. I became an honorary Nazarene when I did my elective there as a medical student back in 1993, and saw at first hand the great work being done, using healthcare to build bridges between people.

The Nazareth Trust is raising money to provide much-needed refurbishment for the Paediatric Department, and a group of us are cycling through the ancient terrain of the Galilee in November 2016. Christians, Atheists, Muslims, Jews and others - all are welcome. So please go over to my Justgiving page and sponsor me! Also share on Facebook and Twitter: #shanenaz2016 - and thanks so much for your support!
