Franciscan Foundation for the Holy Land


Principal Purpose and Mission


Founded in 1994, the Franciscan Foundation For The Holy Land (FFHL) is a worldwide ecumenical organization,
based in the USA, operating under the auspices of the Franciscan Custody of the Holy Land.
The principal purpose of the FFHL is to help stem the Christian exodus from the Holy Land by providing programs
and projects that will serve as incentives for the Christians to remain as well as safeguarding
the basic human rights of the Christian Palestinian minority living in the Holy Land.

The Board of Trustees includes 20 professionally committed Catholics from across the United States.
Father Peter F. Vasko, OFM, serves as President of the Board of Trustees.


The focus of FFHL is to keep a Christian presence in the Holy Land by providing education, employment and housing.
