Tackling poverty and injustice in the Middle East

Embrace the Middle East is a non-governmental, interdenominational charity supporting humanitarian projects in the Middle East. For over 160 years we have been working to improve the lives of vulnerable and disadvantaged people, and we have extensive experience and expertise in this region. Embrace supports over 40 partner organisations in Egypt, Lebanon, Syria, Israel and Palestine which are Christian-led but who provide care for all those in need, regardless of faith or nationality. Today, with an annual programme spend of around £2.5 million, Embrace is the biggest UK Christian development charity focused exclusively on the Middle East.

Formerly known as BibleLands, we changed our name in August 2012 as part of an exciting plan to re-launch the charity in order to become even more effective in one of the world's most troubled regions.
