Charity Doctors of the World UK has launched alternative Christmas cards showing traditional Biblical nativity scenes interrupted with images of modern wars in the Middle East.

One of the four designs shows the Three Wise Men pointing to the skies as a drone flies overhead.

The charity is selling the packs to raise funds for its healthcare work across the region.

Social media users shared the images with the hashtag #realityxmas.

“We’ve launched this campaign in the first week of Advent to shine a light on the realities of life in the Middle East at Christmas,” said Executive Director Leigh Daynes.

“We want to provoke a broad public debate about the effect of the conflict on ordinary people at the time of year when many of us are thinking of loved ones, peace and goodwill.”

Another image showed Biblical figures Joseph and Mary seemingly looking for a place to stay surrounded by bombed-out buildings.
