FHL Patron Applauds our Work
We were delighted to catch up with FHL patron the Most Reverend Malcolm McMahon, the Archbishop of Liverpool, at his home in the city recently. We discussed tensions in the Middle East and the pressures that prompt Christians to consider emigrating. His Grace applauded FHL’s ability to avoid politics, which allows us to carry out essential work in very difficult circumstances.
He said, “The complexities of the Middle East can tempt us to turn our back on fellow Christians in the Holy Land, in the belief it is too hard to help them effectively. It is a great relief therefore, to see how FHL navigates through these challenges, providing a route that allows UK Christians to support named Christians living in the West Bank, Gaza, Israel and Jordan.
“These Christians bear witness to the story of Salvation; that it happened in a real place and to real people. It is hugely important they know they are not forgotten. Working with FHL means supporting our Christian family and not allowing the Holy Land to become a museum to a Christian past.”
