I know the plans I have for you

Embrace the Middle East

Embrace the Middle East

Our vision statement

Ours is a vision of love in action. It is rooted in, and inspired by, Christ’s invitation to care for those most in need.

We support our Christian partners in the Middle East as they work to transform lives and restore the dignity of the most excluded and marginalised in their communities. Where there is a need – for refuge, a home, for health care, for education, for justice and human rights – we, with our partners, aim to respond. We hope this contributes to a culture of human flourishing in a war-torn region.

We currently have 50 courageous, inspired, creative and skilled partners in the region. All are working to transform the lives of those most forgotten and on the margins; all are inspired by the Gospel. We feel deeply privileged to work in partnership with them and honoured to be able to bring their witness closer to people in this country.

Who we are

Embrace the Middle East is an ecumenical Christian charity, originally set up in 1854. We work with and through Christian charities in the Middle East, as our partners, to bring hope and healing to communities in the region. Currently, we work with partners in Egypt, Syria, Lebanon, Iraq, Israel and Palestine.
