Ecumenical Accompaniment Programme in Palestine and Israel (EAPPI)

Each year, EAPPI sends around 100 "ecumenical accompaniers" (EAs) from different countries to vulnerable communities in Palestine, where their task is to protect and show solidarity with those communities, and advocate on their behalf. EAs also accompany the Israeli peace movement in their activities.
