We've done it again! This time we biked from Petra in Jordan up to Nazareth in Israel, to raise money for the Nazareth Hospital CT Scanner appeal. Nazareth is the largest Arab town in Israel, but they still don't have a dedicated Stroke Unit to cope with this devastating condition and major cause of death. Click here to find out more, and please help this fantastic cause. Thanks!

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!
