Located just 1,500 steps from the birthplace of Christ, Holy Family Hospital is a Catholic teaching maternity and neonatal critical care center serving poor, refugee, and at-risk families in the Holy Land. COVID arrived in Bethlehem in March closing down businesses resulting in a salary stoppage for 90% of the people. Things have not improved. Today, families can barely afford food, let alone medical care.
Baby Ramsey was born during the COVID pandemic to Asia and her husband Tareq. When Asia woke up one morning with severe labor pains, they rushed to Holy Family Hospital where Ramsey was delivered at 30 weeks. Ramsey was so small and weak that he struggled to breathe and could not nurse. He was cared for in the NICU until he grew strong enough to go home. Babies like Ramsey do not stop being born just because there is a pandemic and resulting humanitarian crisis.
Bring Christmas to Bethlehem at their hour of great need.
