Syria: Bringing food and friendship

About 7,500 meals are being served in Aleppo in Syria – thanks to your support for the work done by a heroic priest, Father Ziad Hilal.

The Jesuit explained: “We have a big kitchen. This kitchen was sponsored by ACN and other associations, and a lot of people come.”

Fr Ziad revealed how not only is the Church feeding many Muslims in a starving city – but the kitchen itself is run by a team of both Muslims and Christians.

Highlighting the good inter-faith relations that exist in spite of persecution and violence, Fr Ziad said: “The only way is dialogue between Syrians [of different faiths] because…with weapons we couldn’t find a resolution. We have to stop the weapons and work for peace.”
