What We Do
FACE devotes itself exclusively to supporting Eastern Christians in the Middle East, North Africa and the Horn of Africa so that Eastern Christians may remain in their homelands – if they so desire.
FACE’s projects enable Eastern Christians:
FACE has exclusive access to Œuvre d’Orient’s networks in the Middle East, North Africa and the Horn of Africa, including its close links to the Patriarchs, Metropolitans, Major archbishops and Bishops of the Eastern Catholic Churches.*
FACE delivers grant aid directly to specific projects which have been proposed and approved by the local Christian communities in conjunction with Œuvre d’Orient, and which are managed by the local dioceses and religious communities.
More than 400 institutions across the Middle East, including infant/ primary/ secondary schools and universities, are supported in order:
