The Shepherd Society in Bethlehem

Caring for the Needy in Christ's Birthplace
Since 1996 the Shepherd Society has been assisting struggling Palestinians in the West Bank with meeting basic needs such as food, utilities, employment and medical care. In 2007 our outreach extended to Gaza, and more recently to Syrian refugees in Jordan. The name "Shepherd Society" is a reference to Jesus, the Good Shepherd, who told his disciple Peter to care for his sheep.
