Volunteers from Operation Dove, a nonviolent peace corps of the Pope John XXIII Community, have been present in the Palestinian village of At-Tuwani since 2004. Their presence is necessary because they protect children on their way to school and safeguard the safety of Palestinian residents in the area, as well as denounce the Human Rights violations that too often occur there. Support our volunteers to ensure the children and families there are safe and secure.

Their presence is crucial: support them on this journey of peace.

Two buses to bring help

The Bethlehem Hut in Montodine (CR) of the Pope John XXIII Community is the home of those who once lived on the streets, where they can start a new life. The 11 people who now live here want to give back the help they received. So they collect food and surpluses from local supermarkets and deliver them to families in need. They also collect furniture that someone donates, disassemble it, transport it and reassemble it in the homes of those who do not have enough resources to buy it. Today there is an urgent need to replace the two vans used for these activities. Help them not to stop, every contribution is important!

In Chile alongside the Mapuche people

The Mapuche, an indigenous people in Chile, have been persecuted and ignored for years: the State does not recognise their existence or protect their identity. Deprived of their land of origin, they are forced to fight to get it back and are therefore victims of strong repression. The Community, with volunteers, supports them in this path of claim in a peaceful and non-violent way. Support them too.
