Advent 2019 – Be generous for the Christians in the Middle East.

EN - Tuesday, 03 December 2019

Your precious help saves lives and improves many others. Thanks to your commitment by our side, thousands of Christians in the East have found a job and a home, are fed and can school their children.

During this Advent, support the Christians of the East and the association in five different ways.

Financial support.

Financially independent, SOS Chrétiens d’Orient is acting impartially. Its funding is 100 % guaranteed by private sources in 2017. That's why your support is essential.

No project can be carried out without the ponctual or regular help of our 100.00 donors. During the holiday season, by donating, you support orphans, feed demobilized families without resource, offer a roof to war widows, make isolated and lonely elderly people smile.

Your support is a precious gift to make them on this donation day. And if your generosity is in large response to our call, we can help more families without the money.

Become a volunteer

In six years, SOS Chrétiens d’Orient has made its mark in the volunteer sector by sending on mission to the Middle East more than 1.800 French and foreign volunteers. These young people in search of truth came to serve the poorest, saw their distress and came back transformed, witnesses of a reality that exceeded their dreams. The essential is invisible to the eyes, you can only see with the heart. They left their families, their lives, their comfort for adventure and the unknown in countries at war or in situations of unstable.

They meet families with open their arms, mothers with whom they cried, fathers with whom they rebuild their houses, grandmothers with whom they played chess, children they played with in garbages. They all went with their human qualities and professional skills, they came back with a much bigger treasure: knowledge. They went as servant, they come back witnesses.

Join our teams on mission and participate in an exceptional adventure, serving the families of the East, which will mark you for life.

Spokesperson of the Christians of the East.

Outside the Middle East, few are well informed about the real situation of local communities. All have an overall vision, often wrongly conveyed by the high media spheres, which sources are not always checked and crossed.

Recognized as an expert in its field, SOS Chrétiens d’Orient regularly responds to the requests of journalists and of institutions, economic or cultural actors, concerned about the situation of Christians in the Near and Middle East.

If you have a special connection with the media world or you know a journalist, bring the voice of the Christians of the East by offering TV or radio interventions to our teams.

SOS Chrétiens d’Orient is on all fronts to promote the cause of Christians in the East: sport, culture, art, history... and lately fashion.

Join the of community for Christians of the East

On October 2014, 20, Pope Francis expressed his concern about the situation in the Middle East:

sos chretiens dorient avent2019 priere

“We must not resign ourselves to thinking of a Middle East without Christians, who for 2,000 years have confessed the name of Jesus, and have been fully integrated as citizens into the social, cultural and religious life of the nations to which they belong… We are witnessing a phenomenon of terrorism in an unimaginable dimension. So many of our brothers are persecuted and had to leave their homes in a brutal way. It seems that the awareness of the value of human life has been lost, it seems that the person does not count and can be sacrificed for other interests… we must pray to face the drama of the decline of the Christian presence on the earth where was born and where is Broadcast Christianity "

Convinced that prayer can move mountains, we invite you to answer the call of the Pope and pray daily for uprooted families, orphans, abandoned elderly people of the East.

The smaller actions are the most important because they are seed of graces.
