Fundraise for your family
When you fundraise for your persecuted family, you're providing vital practical support. Food, medicines, trauma care, legal assistance, safe houses and schools - we can only offer these lifeline services to our brothers and sisters because of the funds you raise.
You're also giving them great encouragement in their faith. It's down to your efforts that we're able to share Christian literature and train missionaries and church leaders in over 60 countries. Last year, Open Doors UK & Ireland raised over £11 million.
"Let us run with perseverance the race marked out for us..." Hebrews 12:1.
