Please join with our
sisters and brothers throughout The Lutheran World Federation in prayer
for Dr. Tawfiq Nasser who is undergoing surgery today at Stanford Hospital in
Palo Alto. Dr. Nasser, CEO of Augusta Victoria Hospital (AVH) in Jerusalem, has been instrumental in bringing remarkable
improvements to the care, treatment and administration of AVH during
The LWF and the ELCA
recently issued an action alert to resolve a financial crisis created by the
non-payment of $18 million in fees for patients that were referred to the
hospital by the Palestinian Authority.
