Franciscan Foundation for the Holy Land DC

The Franciscan Foundation for the Holy Land is a worldwide ecumenical Christian organization founded in 1994 under the auspices of the Franciscan Custody of the Holy Land. The Foundation was created to inform and educate the general public about the plight of Christians in the Holy Land, where inadequate housing, high unemployment and greatly reduced educational opportunities are causing widespread suffering and a mass exodus of the indigenous Christian population. By increasing awareness of the complex human rights issues involving Christians in this part of the world, the Franciscan Foundation for the Holy Land seeks to establish equality of opportunity for this unrepresented minority group and safeguard their right to remain in their homeland.
