Hungary is spending $1.7 million (463 million forints) to help restore Christian churches in Lebanon, according to government records. Prime Minister Viktor Orbán has instructed the Minister of the National Economy to transfer this amount, as the Hungarian government aims to help Lebanon’s Christian minority continue living in their own country and also wants to play a role in preserving the Christian identity and presence in the Middle East.

Hungary is not only involved in the funding of church restorations in Lebanon, but also in the coordination of these projects, in which the Embassy of Hungary in Beirut will play a central role. As well, Hungarian academics from Pázmány Péter Catholic University will also be involved in the venture, alongside Lebanese specialists from the Université Saint-Esprit de Kaslikot.

The list of churches to be restored through Hungarian funds includes 31 places of worship in nine regions of Lebanon.
