Media reports say the U.S. administration will not continue to fund the Lutheran World Federation-operated Augusta Victoria Hospital in Jerusalem, which serves patients from the West Bank and Gaza. The U.S. has already committed $25 million as part of the 2017 federal budget – funding that is now under threat of not being disbursed.

The ELCA provides ongoing support to Augusta Victoria through your gifts to ELCA World Hunger and Lutheran Disaster Response. Give now and your gifts will be used over and above our church’s ongoing, annual support in order to prevent interruptions to the lifesaving, critical care provided to children and other patients.

In addition to financial support, please urge our elected officials to continue funding to Augusta Victoria Hospital by calling the White House hotline (202-456-1111) or writing a comment in its comments submissions area.
