Pontifical Mission for Palestine
The Pontifical Mission for Palestine (PMP) is an agency of the Holy See established by Pope Pius XII in 1949 to act as the Holy See’s special agency for humanitarian and charitable assistance to the people of the Holy Land without distinction of nationality or religion. Although its first office was established in Beirut, other offices were opened later in Jerusalem and Amman.
PMP continues to support church and local community institutions in areas where the church is present, in addition to supporting social, cultural, recreational and spiritual programs for the youth as well as short- term and longer-term employment opportunities for the unemployed.
The Secretary General of the Catholic Near East Welfare Association (CNEWA) in New York City is the President of the Pontifical Mission.
