Oil helps keep hospital running

An unidentified youth from the Lutheran World Federation’s vocational training program in Jerusalem helps harvest olives on the LWF Mount of Olives property. Local and international volunteers who support the LWF Jerusalem Program picked the 800 olive trees from mid-October through November. Donations for the olive oil go to Augusta Victoria Hospital’s Fund for the Poor to help offset the hospital’s operational costs.
