RISEN

Raise hope this Easter for persecuted Christians in northern Nigeria.

Your gift will help them survive, stay strong, and be safe.

MY EASTER GIFT

Violence against Christians is rising across Africa.

But for Christians like Hajaratu, hope is also rising. Because Christ is risen – and because people like you care.

Hajaratu lost everything when extremist Fulani militants attacked her village. But she hasn’t lost her hope in Christ. Thanks to people like you, she’s received food to feed her children, money to rebuild her burnt-out home and trauma counselling to help her grieve her lost daughter. (Read Hajaratu’s story)

Your support this Easter will cause hope to rise for persecuted Christians like Hajaratu in northern Nigeria.

Please pray, and if you are able, please give today.

  • Every HK$365 could give a Christian family of five food for a month after they’ve fled their home.
  • Every HK$775 can help train a church-goer as a counsellor who can help many persecuted Christians through their trauma.
  • Every HK$1,160 could give a church leader crucial discipleship training as they serve on the front line in a volatile region.

Thank you and may you have a meaningful remembrance of the Holy Week!

*Any excess funds from this appeal will be used to support vital long term work for Christians facing high levels of persecution.

 

 

Will you show Christians in North Korea and other countries where persecution is extreme that they are:

NOT ALONE

NOT FORGOTTEN

NOT EVER

GIVE NOW

What if being a Christian meant you lost your home, your family, your freedom or even your life?

Christians from countries like North Korea, India and Iran know what it means to follow Jesus no matter the cost. They face extreme persecution every day, simply for their faith.

Will you show them that they are not alone, not forgotten, not ever?

———

North Korea has been rated the most dangerous place in the world to be a Christian for the 20th year running. The Open Doors World Watch List 2021 shows that extreme persecution is rising across the world.

We’re not powerless. Far from it. Every time you give, every time you pray, every time you act in support of your persecuted family, you’re bringing a secret believer hope in their darkest hour. Your lifetime of commitment is encouraging them in their lifetime of following Jesus too.

Please give and pray today.

  • Every HK$400 could give a Bible to three believers from a country where Christians face extreme persecution.
  • Every HK$550 could give biblical training to a believer in the underground church.
  • Every HK$700 could provide food, medicine and shelter for a believer fleeing extreme persecution.

You’ll never know the names of the secret believers you help, but they will know that you love them.

Thank you and may God richly bless you!

The Syrian Church has faced war, persecution - now pandemic.

WILL YOU STAND WITH THEM TODAY?
DONATE NOW

Nothing stops the church. Not war. Not persecution. Not even Covid-19 pandemic. But none of this is possible without prayer or the support of the worldwide Christian family.


Pastor George has seen it all. The extremist ideology of Islamic State of Syria. The invasion of the Turkish army. Persecution and poverty driving thousands of Christians to leave their country.

The Syrian church has been shrinking in size, yet growing in strength. New believers from a Muslim background have been risking everything to follow Jesus and join the church.

Sadly, the pandemic has left these courageous new believers even more vulnerable. Cut off from their families for choosing a new faith, they no longer have a safety net for support.

That’s why Open Doors is helping churches like George’s become Centres of Hope across the Middle East. The church is a great support network. There in the heart of the local community, supported by a global family.

  • Every HK$470 could provide a monthly food relief pack for a persecuted family in Syria.
  • Every HK$600 could contribute to medical care for a believer in Syria.
  • Every HK$710 could provide a kit of winter clothes and blankets to help a family survive in winter.

“Everyone who suffers for his faith in Christ has the right to assistance from that part of the body that Christ has blessed with liberty, knowledge and resources.” – Brother Andrew
