Dear Friends,

Two thousand years ago the little town of Bethlehem rejoiced in the birth of the Christ Child. Today, mothers and fathers journey to Holy Family Hospital in Bethlehem to safely deliver their own bundles of joy. Your generosity gives the greatest gift of all — the gift of life. Just as the Virgin Mary and St. Joseph were welcomed by the inn keeper, our doctors and nurses compassionately care for all families entering our doors without regard to need or creed. No one is ever turned away.

Our dedicated NICU, the only one in the region, operates at maximum capacity to save the most vulnerable lives — newborns with a long road of treatment ahead of them. Holy Family Hospital projects 4,800 births this year. You can make a difference when you help bring about the miracle of new life only steps away from the manger.

Pope St. John Paul II recognized the need to embrace the most marginalized in the Holy Land by naming our Hospital a priority for the millennium. Please open your hearts and stand with us in caring for the poor and vulnerable. This Christmas, you can walk in the footsteps of Christ when you give as He gave — the gift of life.
