TIME OF JOY, TIME OF GIVING
For unto us a child is born, Christ Jesus, the Lord. This holiday, may the true reason for the season shine through you. May our hearts journey toward Bethlehem as we remember the birth of our Savior. Franciscan Foundation for the Holy Land wishes you the gift of faith, the blessing of hope and the peace of His love at Christmas and always.
Today, there are approximately 150,000 Christians living in the Holy Land. Due to severe political and economic hardships, hundreds of Christian families leave the Holy Land each year. This steady Christian exodus from the land where Christianity began suggests that within the next 50 years, the Christian community will cease to exist unless something is done.
As the Christian population struggles to survive in a volatile political environment of ethnic distrust, the FFHL uses every available resource to give Christians a reason to remain in their home; thus accomplishing our mission of safeguarding the Christian presence in the Holy Land.
“THE FOCUS OF FFHL IS TO PRESERVE THE CHRISTIAN PRESENCE IN THE HOLY LAND BY PROVIDING KEY NECESSITIES TO EVERYDAY LIFE.”
