Gift 7: Restore persecuted believers’ dignity through socioeconomic projects

R245.00R10,945.00

In many places where persecuted believers live, support from the community is how you survive. When someone becomes a Christian, they lose that support. They’re denied access to community resources such as clean water or jobs or may even lose their jobs because of their Christian faith. When this happens, they face ridicule and shame.

Description

In many places where persecuted believers live, support from the community is how you survive. When someone becomes a Christian, they lose that support. They’re denied access to community resources such as clean water or jobs or may even lose their jobs because of their Christian faith. When this happens, they face ridicule and shame.

When the pandemic hit, Kasem, a daily labourer in Bangladesh, couldn’t go and work for his family. Open Door could assist him with emergency food aid and provide him with two goats to start a goat rearing business. “I felt very hopeless as a father and husband, and my frustration grew day by day. Without that support, it would have been very hard for me to manage food for my family,” he says.

When persecuted believers experience economic difficulties because of their faith and social standing, your Gift of Hope can restore their dignity through socioeconomic projects such as providing them clean water, a sustainable income or micro-finance training to start a business.

R245 could provide one believer with access to clean water.
R700 could support one believer to create a sustainable income.
R10 945 could provide one believer with micro-finance training to support their family.

Some names and photos may be representative to protect the identity of those persecuted for their faith.
