My friend the Rev. Mark Brown, is the Lutheran World Federation Regional Representative in Jerusalem. Mark asked me to help out with a promotional video for the Augusta Victoria Hospital.
The Lutheran World Federation’s Augusta Victoria Hospital has served Palestinian refugees since 1950. The mission of Augusta Victoria Hospital is to alleviate human suffering, promote peace and civil society, provide health care without regard to race, creed, gender, or national origin, provide services for those in social need with priority services to Palestinian refugees and commit to the development and maintenance of the highest standard of diagnostic and clinical service.
In honor of his wife, Kaiser Wilhelm of Germany built Augusta Victoria in 1910, as a hospice and rest home on the Mount of Olives, overlooking the Old City of Jerusalem.
