altReflections from HCEF President/CEO:

Humans are complex and deeply profound beings.  The various relationships and traits that we encompass collectively contribute to the essence of who we are.  Our faith, family roles, occupations and nationality all work together to shape the richness of our identity and how we fit into this world.  

An incredibly important point of identity for Palestinian Christians is our ethnicity which serves as the root of our suffering.

Israel still bans construction materials from entering the Gaza Strip stalling major efforts to reconstruct local businesses, factories, public institutions, schools and homes. Gaza’s unemployment and poverty rates have been driven to higher levels due to the level of destruction. Thousands of families whose homes were damaged or destroyed remain homeless and continue to struggle to find adequate shelter.
