Friends of the Holy Land
Friends of the Holy Land is a non-political Christian Charity supporting the Christian population of the *West Bank, Gaza, Israel and Jordan, supporting them to develop a resilient and enduring Christian community. Living as a Christian in today’s Holy Land is challenging. Travel restrictions, water shortages, limited access to medical or social care, and poverty means many Christians emigrate if they can. In addition, there is often a psychological effect; living in the shadow of an 18 foot high separation wall cut off from their land and olive groves.
The charity raises awareness of the challenges faced by Christians in the Holy Land, encourages people to pray for them, raises funds to provide a sustainable future and encourages Christians to pilgrimage to the Holy Land to meet local Christians.
