During the Christmas period in particular, the children of the Holy Land were the first to benefit from the support given to the local Church by the Order of the Holy Sepulchre.
This Christmas will certainly be different from the ones we experienced in the past years. But no less heartfelt or open to solidarity with those most in need, particularly through small gestures. The Lieutenancy for Western Spain launched the solidarity campaign “Not one child without a toy in the Holy Land” open to Knights and Dames but also friends of the Order and all people of good will. It may have been a small initiative with respect to large projects but it is one example of concretely bringing warmth and closeness to the little ones of the land of Jesus in a year that has been marked not only by the pandemic but also by the ensuing economic crisis.
