Segment 4 – Holy Family Hospital of Bethlehem Foundation
Holy Family Hospital is located just 1,500 steps from the birthplace of Christ. This Catholic teaching hospital serves a population where most are likely descendants of the shepherds who ran to be at the side of the Christ Child over 2,000 years ago. Just as the original manager provided shelter to Mary, Joseph and Jesus during their time of need, so does Holy Family Hospital, which embraces and accepts all who seek care, regardless of religion, ethnicity, or ability to pay. No one is ever turned away. Ambassador Bowe also talks about the devastating effect the Israel and Hamas War has had on Bethlehem.
