Why Us

Why Choose the Mission of Hope and Mercy?

We believe that the current atrocities being perpetrated upon Christians and other religious minorities constitute an unacceptable genocide. When Christians suffer in any part of the world, especially when the faith is being eliminated from the Middle East, the lands where Christianity began, all people suffer, regardless of religion or race.

Pope John Paul II said in 1997 “Lebanon is more than a country, it is a message of freedom and an example of pluralism for both East and West…” Lebanon is once again demonstrating its important role in religious freedom by taking in over 1 million Christians and other religious minorities who have been driven from their homes and persecuted for believing in the God of the Bible or in the free exercise of religious thought. We will assist persecuted Christians who have fled to Lebanon through our connection with the historic Maronite Catholic Church in Lebanon.
