Department of Service to Palestinian Refugees of the Middle East Council of Churches (DSPR-MECC)

DSPR is an ecumenical and Church-related organization which is an integral part of the Middle East Council of Churches (MECC); it was founded following the 1948 Arab-Israeli War and the creation of the Palestine refugee problem. DSPR continues to operate in the Palestinian Territories (West Bank and Gaza Strip), Jordan, Lebanon and Galilee.
