We make it our mandate to raise awareness about the extent and nature of the persecution of Christians and how we can help them.
We do this through the use of our publications, seminars, and workshops, as well as inviting people who have personally been affected to share their first-hand experiences. When you give to ICR, you can rest assured that every dollar will go to minister to persecuted brothers and sisters around the world. We are grateful to all partners and contributors. Our Ministries. Helping Persecuted Christians Millions of Christians around the globe are discriminated against and persecuted on account of their faith in Christ. The reasons for the persecution may be motivated by political, religious, or social factors.
We desire to step in and provide help. Our network in 47 countries enables us to provide quick and effective help and save lives and to provide new opportunities. We do this through medical care, legal assistance, and projects that develop education and income generation. Church Planting Christians face great challenges in countries with restricted freedom of religion.
In collaboration with local partners and networking we are able to create synergies that enable them to help and encourage one another.

Pastoral Care and Church Social Work
We also transport relief materials by truck several times a year to the poorest regions of Eastern Europe. In this way tonnes of quality used clothing and other relief goods reach people in need. Human Rights and Religious Freedom We are convinced that people should have the freedom to live out their faith regardless of what country they live in. In fact, this is explicitly stated in article 18 of t he Universal Declaratio n of Human Rights. However, in numerous countries religious minorities, particularly Christians, are restricted from living out their faith.
