United Methodists are responding to the urgent call from Palestinian
Christians in Kairos Palestine:  A Moment of Truth,  to end the Israeli occupation and achieve a just peace in the Holy Land.. UMKR seeks – through nonviolent action and in partnership with our Palestinian sisters and brothers in Christ – freedom, justice and equality for all Palestinians and Israelis.

Giving Changes the World

With limited resources, UMKR has

had a remarkable impact in the global United Methodist Church! Historic divestment and boycott actions could not have happened without the vital support of those who believe in the cause of Palestinian rights. Please give whatever you can today, so that our work can continue. And rest assured that every donation, large or small,

helps the cause!

Enthusiastic, caring, and dedicated. A vision of justice and peace in Palestine and Israel brings internationals human rights monitors to witness life under occupation and go home to promote change.

We’ve brought 1,800 ecumenical accompaniers to live in the West Bank and monitor human rights.                                  

Ecumenical Accompaniers provide a protective presence, monitor human rights abuses, and support Israeli and Palestinian peace activists. EAPPI contributes to an end of the occupation and encourages a peaceful resolution to the Israeli/Palestinian conflict in accordance with international law and UN resolutions. We witness life under occupation, engage with local Palestinians and Israelis who are nonviolently pursuing a just peace, and seek to change the international community’s involvement in the conflict, urging them to act against injustice in the region.

Participants of the Ecumenical Accompaniment Program in Palestine and Israel (EAPPI)
• Live in the West Bank for a three month term 
• Work as an international team to provide protective presence to vulnerable communities 
• Monitor and report human rights abuses and support Palestinians and Israelis working together for a just peace 
• Build relationships with Palestinian Christian communities and others supporting non-violence globally to strengthen networks of solidarity 
• When they return home, talk about their first-hand experiences to inform people of the realities of the occupation and campaign for a just and peaceful resolution to the Israeli/Palestinian conflict based on international law and UN resolutions. 

EAPPI is a program founded by the World Council of Churches in response to a call from the local Heads of Churches in Jerusalem.

EAPPI-US is the US based program through which Ecumenical Accompaniers (EAs) from the United States participate in EAPPI. EAPPI-US is supported by US national churches in partnership with Church World Service and welcomes engagement from a wide range of churches, agencies and individuals.
