Walking to Salvation

Jesus Christ Brotherhood is in charge of carrying disabled people to all Holy Places in Israel, no matter how difficult is the access to those places. Judaean Desert is one of the sites, where the Tradition says Jesus Christ went to prepare himself for his public life. Now, Jesus Christ Brotherhood goes to Israel once a year with around 15 disabled people to offer them the opportunity of living such religious experience otherwise impossible to be done by themselves. Every disabled person is accompanied by a volunteer, so they are all the time assisted.
