Defending Global Religious Freedom

Defending Global Religious Freedom

Did you know that Christians are the most persecuted religious group in the world? Over 360 million Christians live in places of danger or extreme discrimination throughout the world simply because of their faith.

We are delivering justice for and sharing the stories of the persecuted throughout the world. Everyone should be able to practise their faith freely without persecution, without fear of violence.

As the challenges facing the Church are not bound by borders, we seek to eliminate this horror through our defence of Global Religious Freedom.
