The FBFF is committed to supporting the Bereaved Families Forum (PCFF), a joint Israeli and Palestinian organisation made up of more than 600 bereaved families all of whom have lost a close family member to the conflict. Instead of seeking revenge, they have chosen a path of reconciliation.
The long-term vision of the members of the Bereaved Families Forum is to have a reconciliation process as an integral part of any future peace agreement.
The FBFF is a non-political organisation that has been moved by the courage of the Bereaved Families Forum and their attempt to build bridges between the two communities instead of perpetuating hatred.
We are committed to raising funds to help the Bereaved Families Forum and also to increasing awareness in the UK of the importance of their dialogue, narrative and public outreach projects which influence thousands of Israelis and Palestinians each year.
We believe that the tragic loss of lives will come to an end only through both sides’ empathy and respect for each other’s pain and dignity.
Please support the work of the Bereaved Families Forum by making a donation, joining our events and spreading the messages to your communities.
Do not be pro-Israeli or pro-Palestinian. We ask that you be pro-peace.
