How We Help

Open Doors works in over 70 countries, supplying Bibles, training church leaders, providing practical support and emergency relief, and supporting Christians who suffer persecution and discrimination for their faith. Our national bases in 25 countries work to raise awareness of global persecution, mobilising prayer, support and action among Christians.

Bible Distribution
Distributing Bibles and Christian resources

Despite increased security control and restrictions, Open Doors provides contextualised Christian materials in minority languages. Last year, Open Doors distributed over 1 million bibles and books worldwide.

Training Christians and church leaders

In the last year, Open Doors trained more than 3.3 million persecuted Christians across the world. Training include leadership and discipleship courses, trauma care and persecution survival seminars.

Supporting victims of violence and disaster

In 2021 Open Doors helped 685,887 persecuted Christians with emergency relief, community development, education and medical care. Much of the urgent relief went to persecuted Christians in countries hard-hit by Covid-19.

Hope for the Middle East
Raising awareness and encouraging prayer

“Our prayers can go where we cannot.” Brother Andrew, founder of Open Doors. Across the world, we mobilise prayer support for persecuted Christians. We encourage the global church to stand with them in prayer so that they know they are not alone.

Speaking out in advocacy

We help persecuted believers by advocating on their behalf,
providing legal support, and seeking positive policy changes in their country.
