Want to visit Palestine – Looking for a family to take me in

Contributed by Erik Burneyko on 30.05.2008:

Hi, I don’t know if this is an unusual request but I would love to visit Palestine next summer. I have been reading a lot and viewing a lot about the land and occupation and have been touched and pained by what is happening in the world and how blind people around me can be. I would love to visit and help out in any community activities taking place along with interviewing, taking pictures and just spending time with the people. However, I do not know anyone there and do not know how to even start to plan this trip. Any tips?? Are there any families that take visitors in from abroad?? Please advise, thank you so much.

I’ve never traveled there myself, but this website looks like a good starting point: http://www.atg.ps/index.php?page=1177263097 They have some tips for planning different sorts of trips to the region. I’m sure others here could help you out with more detailed information.

Hope that helps!
