Gift 6: Defend and seek justice for persecuted believers

R350.00R1,480.00

As a way to get persecuted believers in trouble, persecutors will falsely accuse them of things such as blaspheming another religion’s god, theft, or even sexual assault. These incidents result in Christians being either fined, imprisoned or facing court cases. In many cases, Christians don’t know their legal rights, or they have no means of defending themselves.

Description

As a way to get persecuted believers in trouble, persecutors will falsely accuse them of things such as blaspheming another religion’s god, theft, or even sexual assault. These incidents result in Christians being either fined, imprisoned or facing court cases. In many cases, Christians don’t know their legal rights, or they have no means of defending themselves.

After Raju*, Ankita* and other believers were attacked while fellowshipping at the couple’s house, Open Doors partners assisted them with legal help, filing a report and seeking compensation for their medical bills. “I really want to thank the Open Doors partner and the organisation for their help during a very difficult phase of our lives. Especially your help regarding the legal matters was vital as we lacked legal knowledge,” says Raju.

Defend and seek justice for persecuted believers through your Gift of Hope, which could provide them with legal assistance and training to know their legal rights when they’re attacked, imprisoned, opposed or face discrimination.

R350 could help mobilise international legal assistance for victims of persecution.
R500 could equip church leaders to speak out and defend persecuted believers.
R1 480 could teach one believer about their legal rights as a Christian when persecuted.
