Celebration of Life

We understand that this is a painful and difficult time in your life as you’ve recently lost someone you loved. At times like this, some people find creating and contributing to a Memorial Tribute helpful, as a way of remembering, honouring and celebrating that special person, by continuing to support projects they were passionate about, as well as having a space for memories, photos and personal tributes. The written memories, photos and personal tributes stay on the site forever, for you to visit as often as you want, and we pray that you will find comfort in them.

We understand that setting up a Memorial Tribute is an intensely personal decision and would encourage you to think and pray about whether it’s right for you. Of course the timing may not be right at the moment – if this is something that you would like to set up at a later date, please use the link below, whenever you feel ready.

About Embrace the Middle East

All gifts given to Embrace the Middle East in memory of a loved one make a significant and lasting difference in the lives of individuals, families and communities throughout this beautiful yet troubled region. We are grateful for everyone who chooses to give in memory, no matter how big or small the gift – we are glad to have the opportunity to celebrate the life of your loved one with you.

Ben's story
One of our generous supporters, Jenn Walker, passed away in June 2016. Ben Walker wanted to do something in memory of his mum, Jenn, and raise money for ‘her charity’.

So, in summer 2017, he was one of five cycling enthusiasts and Embrace supporters who took part in Ride London – a 100 mile cycle race through the closed roads of London and on to Surrey’s stunning country roads and hills.

Ben says: ‘Mum had a strong faith, touched many people throughout her life and believed in practical, social good works. ‘She supported charities throughout her life including the sponsorship of children in the Middle East through Embrace. She even visited the region and saw the difference her generous contributions made – which included building houses in Egypt and a braille machine in Lebanon.’

What you can do

Some people chose to give personally to the Memorial Tribute on special dates or anniversaries, some people ask friends and family to join in giving (often in lieu of flowers), while others do Challenge Events in memory of someone special. However you chose to raise money for Embrace in memory of your loved one, we thank you and join you in celebrating their life and what made them special.

Keeping in touch

We’d love to keep you updated with the difference the donations in memory of your loved one will make (please read our privacy policy for details), and hope that setting up a Memorial Tribute helps you find peace and consolation, as you celebrate their life in such a practical way.
