Arise Africa

Stand up to violent persecution in Sub-Saharan Africa.

act now

Christians in Sub-Saharan Africa face violent persecution on a scale never seen before.
We must act. Will you stand with your persecuted brothers and sisters today?

Your support is urgently needed.

Violent persecution in Sub-Saharan Africa is unprecedented. Christians are being murdered, raped and kidnapped. Islamic extremists target believers and want to destroy the church.

It’s time for Christians like you to join our African family and stand up, as one, against violent persecution.



It’s an invitation to you: Unite with your brothers and sisters in Sub-Saharan Africa and stand up to violent persecution.
ARISE AFRICA is run by Open Doors, an organisation that supports persecuted Christians worldwide. It’s a four-year campaign which aims to:
  • Bring sustained awareness to the problem of extremist violence and its impact on Christians in Sub-Saharan Africa.
  • See people like you actively praying and speaking out against violent persecution.
  • Support four million persecuted Christians in Africa spiritually, physically and emotionally.
