Clearing Landmines

As a result of conflict, the site of the Baptism of Christ, known as Qaser al-Yahud, is heavily mined. It is home to ancient churches and monasteries, which haven’t been safe to visit for nearly fifty years. Now the HALO Trust has secured approval from the Israelis, Palestinians and religious denominations to remove the landmines so that people can explore the area in safety. Clearing minefields at the Baptism Site not only removes a deadly legacy of conflict; it helps build bridges between fractured communities. Eye Film produced this fundraising video for them to help raise awareness and attract donations. They need people of all faiths to join them and raise funds to make this very special site safe for all humanity.
