Between one and three million Uyghurs, a predominantly Muslim ethnic group, are detained in camps by the Chinese government. In Afghanistan, Shi’a, Hindu, Sikh and Christian communities are under threat. In central Nigeria, Christian communities are being attacked on a scale not seen before.
As Christians, we stand with all who face injustice because of their religion or belief.

We believe no one should suffer discrimination, harassment or persecution because of their beliefs
