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.”
These programs are supported by the generosity of our donors. Please consider making a tax exempt donation to a program of your choice to do your part to safeguard the Christian presence in the Holy Land.
