Our Hope for the Holy Land Campaign supports Christian families in the Holy Land, whose livelihoods are threatened due to COVID-19

For our friends in the US wishing to donate in a tax-efficient manner, please donate via our Signatry page here.

Our goal is to raise £250,000 to support families in the Holy Land. 

At this time of year, hundreds of thousands of pilgrims and tourists would normally flock to Jerusalem and Bethlehem to celebrate the events of Easter and Pentecost.

Today, the coronavirus pandemic means that not one pilgrim celebrated Easter in the Holy City this year. Churches, hotels, restaurants and shops, that would normally be full of visitors, are now shut and holy sites lie empty. For local families this is absolutely devastating as the lack of income means many face great hardship and in some cases destitution.

Please help support families facing hardship by donating to our Hope for the Holy Land campaign. The most vulnerable families will be identified with the help of local churches and charity partners, and the monies will be distributed by two local banks.

Your support will be a lifeline to one or more families. Thank you for bringing hope to families in Jerusalem and Bethlehem this Easter.

We ask project owners to honour their rewards wherever possible but please note that all pledges are donations and there is no guarantee that you will receive any rewards from the project owner. Please see Crowdfunder's Terms of Use for more information regarding rewards for pledges.
