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.

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 families with basic necessities of food, rent and medical expenses.

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.
Each year thanks to the partnership of caring Canadian Christians, HOPE provides much needed scholarships to numerous students at BBC.
