Make an Enduring Difference: Middle East Christians Endowment

Christianity was born in the Middle East — but today, it is disappearing. Families are leaving because of political instability, economic hardship and conflict. As they leave, fewer voices are witnessing for forgiveness and peace.

We can help stop the exodus of Middle East Christians. Catholic leaders in the region are committed to helping, but in order for them to succeed, they need our sustained support.

Pope Francis asks us to support and pray for Middle East Christians. Through CNEWA, you can work alongside the Holy Father to help our brothers and sisters stay in the Middle East.

What is the Endowment?

Contributions that are invested in the Endowment will not be used for an immediate need. It will be invested for the long run, and the earnings will be used to strengthen Christians in the Middle East through CNEWA.

To establish this Endowment, we need to start with at least $1 million — that is the total contributions from all donors. Make an enduring difference in the lives of our Christian brothers and sisters in the Middle East. Please read our Endowment brochure here for more information.

For more information, please call our office at 1-866-322-4441. To make a donation, send a cheque to CNEWA Canada at 223 Main Street, Ottawa, ON, K1S 1C4 (for the “Middle East Endowment”); or donate online.
