International Persecution

Across the globe there has been a significant escalation in discrimination, persecution and violence against Christians on the basis of their faith. More Christians have died for their beliefs in the twentieth century than at any other time in history. Christians are particularly vulnerable where they are a minority in Islamic countries. At Christian Concern we seek to highlight and expose this persecution and encourage the church to engage in practical ways and help where they can.
