Church World Service supports development in the Middle East through partnerships with local community and/or faith-based organizations. Through facilitation, capacity building, and financial support, we empower partners to nurture sustainable development among those in greatest need in their own communities and nations.
In Gaza and the West Bank, development means working with families that are facing increasingly deteriorating economic and social conditions. Water is a precious commodity in the Middle East, and even more so in the West Bank. CWS works with community by community to address water needs, with the aim of helping provide water to as many people as possible, sustainably.
