One of Evesham Quaker Meeting's attenders had the opportunity in November 2009 to visit Israel/Palestine and the West Bank on a trip organised to see the effects of the Israeli Occupation on the Palestinian population, the work of the Israeli Campaign Against House Demolitions (ICAHD), and in particular the effects on the health of Palestinians. These are
some of the thought-provoking pictures that she took.
