Middle East Fellowship Organizing Summer Delegation to Syria

Kelly Hayes-Raitt sent us the news that the Middle East Fellowship will be hosting delegations to Syria this summer. They are the only organization we know of that is taking Americans to this political hot spot to promote person-to-person peace. This 6-week summer service program will be held in Damascus, Syria, from June 24 – Aug 4. Participants will live with a host family for 3 nights, study Arabic at the Berlitz language institute in Damascus, serve the local community through volunteer projects (such as volunteering at a refugee camp) and explore the culture and history of Syria through meetings, discussions and excursions to sites of historical, political or religious significance. A maximum of 12 participants will stay in single and double rooms with private bathrooms near the Old City of Damascus. The cost for the 6-week program is $2,000 and includes rooms, homestays, breakfasts, most lunches and dinners, language and cultural courses, RT airport transportation, and weekend excursions, including in-country transportation. Transportation to Damascus is not included. For more information, visit www.MiddleEastFellowship.org or call Kelly at (310) 392-8715. The deadline to apply is May 24.
