The project is part of a larger program launched by the Custody of the Holy Land with the aim of providing aid to the poorest families. This project has a positive direct influence on many Christian families who have no income and contributes to safeguarding their presence in Holy Lands and in Jerusalem.
“There is a need to encourage and to provide firm support to those who choose to remain faithful to their land, so that it will not become an archaeological site bereft of Church life…I therefore offer all my support to the initiatives which you are undertaking in order to contribute to the socio-economic conditions which will help those Christians who have stayed in their country, and I urge the whole Church to provide strong support to these efforts” – Benedict XVI
