Activity Ecumenical Accompaniment Programme in Palestine and Israel (EAPPI)
The World Council of Churches’ Ecumenical Accompaniment Programme in Palestine and Israel (EAPPI) was created in 2002 by the WCC based on a letter and an appeal from local church leaders to create an international presence in the country. EAPPI provides a continuous presence of 25-30 Ecumenical Accompaniers, who serve in the field for three months in accompanying local people and communities, offering protective presence, and witnessing their daily struggles and hopes. EAPPI is guided by “principled impartiality”: it takes no side in the conflict nor discriminates against anyone, but it is not neutral in terms of human rights and respect for international humanitarian law.
