Their Faith is Our Hope

To support the suffering Church in Africa, its growing vocations, its priests and religious people working in the most difficult places – especially those who have suffered persecution because of their faith at the hands of terror groups like Boko Haram.

ACN is promoting a campaign to support our Christian brothers and sisters in Africa, the continent of hope.

Help Christian refugees in Syria and Iraq

More than five years of persecution and war are making life unsustainable for Christians in the Middle East – even in some regions they are suffering a real genocide. The reason? Their faith in Jesus. Today more than 13,000 Christian families in Iraq depend on ACN’s help to survive.

Iraq – Return to the Roots

Violently driven from their homes by ISIS in summer 2014, the liberation of the Christian villages in the Nineveh Plains has sparked the desire of thousands of displaced Christian families in northern Iraq to their war-torn homes. ACN, responding to their appeal, is supporting the first phase of the reconstruction of over 13,000 damaged and destroyed homes.
In view of the mammoth task ahead, ACN is calling on the international community to join forces in supporting the continued Christian presence in Iraq and thus assuring the plurality of Iraqi society.
