The Ecumenical Accompaniment Programme in Palestine and Israel (EAPPI) is launching its redesigned Internet web site at on 10 November 2003.

The new site gives EAPPI – which is an initiative of the World Council of Churches (WCC) – a distinctive identity as the programme continues in its second year of operations. It contains all the latest news and reports from the ecumenical accompaniers as well as information about the programme in new “user-friendly” pages.

The new site contains an overview of the programme, reports and reflections from the accompaniers dating back to last year, WCC press releases and news features, WCC policy documents related to the situation in Palestine and Israel, information about how to make donations, as well as directions on how to become an ecumenical accompanier.

In the future, the site will also contain information in Arabic and Hebrew as well as French, German and Spanish.


The Ecumenical Accompaniment Programme in Palestine and Israel (EAPPI) was launched in August 2002. Ecumenical accompaniers monitor and report violations of human rights and international humanitarian law, support acts of non-violent resistance alongside local Christian and Muslim Palestinians and Israeli peace activists, offer protection through non-violent presence, engage in public policy advocacy, and stand in solidarity with the churches and all those struggling against the occupation. The programme is co-ordinated by the World Council of Churches.
