The Franciscan Foundation for the Holy Land has been dedicated to helping those in crisis during the Coronavirus pandemic.
In a recent interview with the Custody of the Holy Land, President Fr. Peter Vasko explained that the foundation has “donated $10,000 to the parish of Bethlehem and $10,000 to the parish of Jerusalem for food supplies.” Vasko says that FFHL has been focused on helping deliver supplies to the elderly and those who were not able to leave their homes because of COVID-19. Additionally, they have been providing assistance to families in need and those who have lost their jobs during this difficult time. FFHL continues to give to many other fields as well, including scholarships for the Magnificat school of music, helping with the building and renovation of homes for the Christians of the Holy Land, financing the social services centre in Bethlehem and the Casa del Fanciullo for children with disadvantaged families, and funding sports programs for Palestinian children.
FFHL greatly appreciates your continued support for Christians in need in the Holy Land. If you would like to contribute to our areas of greatest need please do so below.
