Mediterranean Hope - Refugee and Migrant Programme of the Federation of Protestant Churches in Italy (FCEI), is a project financed largely by the Otto Per Mille tax allocation of the Waldensian Evangelical Church - Union of Methodist and Waldensian Churches, and by other FCEI member churches such as the Evangelical Baptist Christian Union of Italy and the Evangelical Lutheran Church in Italy. Mediterranean Hope's supporters also include various foreign churches and ecumenical agencies such as the Evangelical Church of Westphalia (EKvW), the Church of Scotland, the Reformed Church in the United States, Global Ministres (UCC / Disciples of Christ) and several evangelical communities in Italy.
The project is also supported by individual donations, from Italy and abroad, whose contributions enable the FCEI to continue supporting migrants in their right to move, seek protection and self-determination.
