Dear Lovers of the Middle East,

Few parts of the world have seen more war and conflict than the Middle East.

According to Rev. Moon, one of the greatest peacemakers of all time, the Middle East is a tinderbox ready to ignite at any time. So much pain and suffering has left the people with scars and jaded hearts that make unity difficult. It may not be as impossible to bring peace to the Middle East as we may think, but we can’t do it alone.

Family Federation for World Peace has a strong foundation in many of the Middle East nations. We would like to conduct a “Family Festival for Peace” for the wonderful families connected to our movement from all over the Middle East, including families from enemy nations. If we look for the true peacemakers in the midst of this torn and troubled region, they are these families.

This Festival comes on the foundation of two successful festivals held in the last two years. 

This will be the third time we successfully hold such a festival. The program will include educational programs for parents and children, games, entertainment and a change to reflect and bond together under the warm sun by the Black Sea. Each time the hearts of these mothers and fathers and children are revived, and they have gained hope and great strength to bring a peaceful, harmonious way of life back to their nations and towns.


On July 22-27th, 2019 we will hold this Family Festival in a beautiful resort on the Black Sea, in Istanbul, Turkey. Our goal is to bring over 200 people from families throughout the Middle East. They can pay some fee, but we need to cover their transportation and lodging. This is how you can help.


The estimated expense is $80,000 of which the Regional Headquarters can cover $25,000. So now we are searching for the remaining $55,000. Can you help?


This is a substantial way that we can bring peace in the Middle East. When we bring people together from enemy nations and they experience the heart of God and know that they are One Family under God their life can change, and they become strong agents to work for peace in their respective countries.


How can we ignite the spark of peace in the Middle East? This Family Festival can spark that flame in the hearts of these wonderful brothers and sisters. Can you please help us to ignite this spark? Please make a donation within your means, any amount can help.
