    - ROME - The Jerusalem branch of Caritas has launched a campaign to raise at least 50,000 dollars for gifts and aid to the small Christian community of Gaza. The 350 families - about 1,000 people - are part of the Holy Family parish. Christians in the Gaza Strip are a very small minority among a much larger Muslim population and like other Palestinians survive amid economic hardship in an overcrowded area that has been devastated by incessant conflict and subjected to an economic embargo by Israel. The humanitarian organization of the Catholic Church launched the initiative with the aim of bringing a warm, festive Christmas to the families. The gifts and aid will be taken to Gaza on December 20 and distributed after mass officiated by Patriarch Fouad Twal. The donations in euros marked with ''Regali di Natale per le famiglie di Gaza'' can be sent via bank transfer to: Bank of Palestina PLC. Branch - Bethlehem. P.O.BOX: 765 Betlemme - West Bank via Israel Banca n. 89. Banca Filiale N°: 450.
    Codice Swift: 22 PALSPS.
    Conto n. 1379000. Beneficiario conto: CARITAS GERUSALEMME IBAN. No: PS03PALS045013790000333000000. (ANSAmed).
