We are all well aware of the turmoil in the Middle East. The region has suffered the dissolution of Syria and the rise of ISIS leaving a wake of violence and bloodshed. Millions have been displaced and seek refuge by making dangerous journeys to countries that may not accept them. The Syrian refugee crisis continues to escalate and it is extremely painful to watch our brothers and sisters suffer through this tragedy.
As we continue working to end the recent outbreaks of conflict in the Middle East, we must also continue working for Palestinian Christians, who are both among the refugees recently displaced and have also been displaced many times over since 1948
Palestinians still suffer under occupation and the Holy Land is yet again experiencing resurgence in unrest in Jerusalem and beyond. This is in addition to the injustices imposed on Palestinians every day including land seizures in the Cremisan Valley near Bethlehem which will cause 58 Christian families to lose their homes, and attacks on holy places, such as the burning of the Church of the Multiplication of Loaves and Fish in the Galilee.
The Holy Land Christian Ecumenical Foundation (HCEF) has been working tirelessly over the past 17 years to raise awareness and support for Palestinian Christians. We have succeeded in many ways, yet today we are hearing more cries for help than ever before. Palestinian Christians once again feel that they are the forgotten faithful.
As Christians, We Are Called to be United:
“Though many, [we] form one body, and each member belongs to all the others”
So, please do not forget Palestinian Christians, ancestors of the first followers of Christ, preservers of the faith for over 2,000 years. Give to the Mother Church and support your brothers and sisters in Christ.
HCEF proudly implement over twenty programs and events to restore dignity and hope to Palestinians of the Holy Land (learn more at hcef.org). It is time to help us keep these efforts going strong and unite with Palestinians Christians!
Please remember Palestinian Christians that need your help and donate to our cause today! It is only by working together that we can ensure a hopeful future for our brothers and sisters in the Holy Land, promoting justice and restoring their dignity.
