We serve Christians around the world whose brave faith in Jesus means they are, beaten, threatened, imprisoned, tortured, falsely accused, disowned and hated.

Your impact: 61 MPs support letter!

pattern

Thank you to all of you who wrote to your MP, asking them to sign a letter to the Foreign Secretary and Minister for Women and Equalities highlighting the double vulnerability of Christian women around the world because of their faith and gender. This is part of our ongoing See.Change. campaign. Today the letter was sent, signed by 48 MPs and backed by a further 13 who contacted the Ministers directly! Please pray that this will result in real and significant change for our persecuted sisters.

In the letter to Dominic Raab MP (Foreign Secretary) and Elizabeth Truss MP (Minister for Women and Equalities), we call on the UK government to respond to the issue of gender-specific religious persecution through the implementation of three recommendations:

  • To publicly and explicitly acknowledge that religion is a vulnerability in gender-based violence.
  • To practically support, counsel and re-integrate persecuted women who are stigmatised by sexual violence, abduction or forced marriage.
  • To support and resource the Prime Minister’s Special Envoys for: Freedom of Religion or Belief, Fiona Bruce MP; and Girl’s Education, Helen Grant MP, to work together to address the persecution of women and girls for their faith.

Amazingly, on top of the 48 MPs who added their signature to the letter, a further 13 unable to sign it due to parliamentary protocol, contacted the Ministers directly, adding further backing to the campaign. All in all, this is a fantastic response – thank you for taking the time to contact your MP for your persecuted sisters.

Now that the letter is with Ministers, will you join us in praying for impact? Please pray:
