Deutscher Verein vom Heiligen Lande (DVHL)
German Association of the Holy Land


Established in 1855 by the German Catholic Bishops, the German Association of the Holy Land (DVHL) is a relief organization for the Christians in the Middle East. Besides the support of those in need, the Association considers education and the promotion of interreligious dialogue and reconciliation to be a main part of its mission. The Association also regularly organizes pilgrimages to the Holy Land and sends volunteers from Germany to different social and educational institutions in the Holy Land.
