Assisting persecuted Christians
The fact is still far too little known: Christians are the world's most persecuted religious group. According to careful estimates, well over 309 million people worldwide are discriminated, marginalized, disowned, disinherited, mistreated, expelled, deported, imprisoned, tortured and killed - simply because they want to follow Jesus and live their faith peacefully.

Disregard for religious freedom
Article 18 of the Universal Declaration of Human Rights guarantees freedom of thought, conscience and religion. In many countries, this right is completely disregarded. An anchoring in the respective constitution is often no more than lip service, as in India. Where religious freedom is not granted, other fundamental rights are often also in a bad way, such as the prohibition of torture, the prohibition of discrimination, equality before the law or the right to a fair trial.
