Open Doors works in more than 70 countries, supplying Bibles, training church leaders, providing practical support and emergency relief, and supporting Christians who suffer persecution and discrimination for their faith. Our national bases in 25 countries work to raise awareness of global persecution, mobilising prayer, support and action among Christians.
Despite increased security control and restrictions, Open Doors provides contextualised Christian materials in minority languages.
Last year, Open Doors distributed more than 1 million bibles and books worldwide.
In the last year, Open Doors trained more than 3.3 million persecuted Christians across the world. Trainings include leadership and discipleship courses, trauma care and persecution survival seminars.
In 2020 Open Doors helped 979,459 persecuted Christians with emergency relief, community development, education and medical care.
Much of the urgent relief went to persecuted Christians in countries hard-hit by Covid-19.
“Our prayers can go where we cannot.” - Brother Andrew, founder of Open Doors. Across the world, we mobilise prayer support for Christians suffering persecution and discrimination for their faith. We encourage the global church to stand with them in prayer so that they know they are not alone.
From the White House to the UK parliament, from the EU to the UN, Open Doors brings the voice of persecuted Christians to the ears of the most powerful people in the world.
