HOPE Outreach of Canada is dedicated to sharing the love of Christ world wide and particularly in the Holy Land. In an effort to bolster the struggling and persecuted church there, HOPE Outreach provides scholarships to students in biblical studies at Bethlehem Bible College (BBC). It has been our privilege to support the church in this way since 2008.

In 2014, thanks to the partnership of caring Canadian Christians, HOPE provided much needed scholarships to 10 students at BBC.

Above, Sandreen, a former scholarship recipient, was BBC valedictorian for the graduating class of 2013.

HOPE is also very actively engaged in providing humanitarian aid to families and children in the Bethlehem region through partnership with a local agency, The Shepherd Society. Through the Shepherd Society (SS), HOPE and our generous Canadian partners support many families with basic necessities of food, rent and medical expenses. Below, a woman in Bethlehem receives food staples.


HOPE will, when the needs present themselves, equip short term mission teams to provide medical assistance and/or support local medical personnel to provide necessary treatment. In 2013 we took a team of 16 individuals from all across Canada to provide medical assistance in the form of audiology and dental clinics.

Above, Dr. Brian Field, Meridian Hearing in London, provides hearing aids to a young patient. Thanks to Dr. Field's partnership, HOPE and our team were able to care for and provide hearing aids for 107 patients over one week.

Dr. Samer Andoni is a Bethlehem dentist who provides services through a local charitable dental clinic. Patients in need of dental care often do not have even the funds for this discounted charitable dental care, so in 2013 HOPE provided the funds to this local clinic to provide care for 88 individuals over one week.

These are some of the activities that HOPE provides through the generous partnership of caring Canadians. Please browse our site for more information about this vital ministry work in a needy part of God's kingdom.
