I have had knowledge of the organisation called Christian Solidarity Worldwide for four years now. I was told about it by our parish priest. I’m so glad that he did. Please take a closer look at their website. They do amazing work with and for those Christians who are marginalized, imprisoned and tortured.
The thought of not being able to worship God wherever and whenever I want to seems outrageous when I am able to do just that, but sadly, there are many fellow Christians suffering all over the globe for the freedom to worship Christ in public place or to live a Christian life openly without fear of reprieve.
Here is a taster of the important work CSW undertake:
Here are a few highlights from our work in the past year:
- Influencing the reporting of religious violence in Nigeria to ensure the truth was reported.
- Breakthroughs in our Burma work when fourteen governments supported recommendations for a UN Commission of Inquiry.
- CSW’s unique analysis of Nepal’s draft constitution was used to brief politicians to ensure that it enshrines religious freedom.
- Providing evidence-based reports to the UN human rights reviews of some of the world’s worst abusers of religious freedom.
CSW also aims to mobilise the general public to pray, protest and provide on behalf of persecuted Christians. By doing so, we provide solidarity and support to those in need. (Quoted from the CSW website)
