What Makes FHL So Special? 100% of all donations from individuals, FHL groups, diocese, parishes and charitable trusts goes to needy people and projects in the Holy land. Nothing is held back for overheads, thanks to the generosity of a charitable trust that continues to fund our modest overheads (13% of donations in the financial year 2014/15) 90% of FHL funds go to individual named families, all verified by our small team in Bethlehem or our partners elsewhere in the Holy Land FHL recognises the importance of institutions to maintain a Christian presence in the Holy Land and their work for the whole community, and we support the invaluable help they give to our Christian brothers and sisters.

Friends of the Holy Land (FHL), a UK-based charity committed to supporting Christian people and communities in the Holy Land, maintains an Emergency Appeal focused on helping the remaining Christians in Gaza. Conditions in the Gaza Strip have become exceptionally difficult as a result of the destruction of homes and infrastructure, and FHL is increasingly concerned for the welfare of remaining Christians.
The primary purpose of the Friends of the Holy Land is to support Christians in the Holy Land, to enable them to maintain a minimum level of quality of life such that the pressures to abandon their homeland are reduced. The Friends provide resources for small projects that make a big difference to Christians in the community. Funds contribute to the sustainability of the Christians, especially the most vulnerable.
