Our mission is to help Christians in need.
For more than 70 years, Aid to the Church in Need has been committed to a single mission: to help persecuted, oppressed, and suffering Christians worldwide.

Because faith gives hope

Each year, we screen more than 7,500 aid project requests from more than 149 countries

Together with hundreds of thousands of benefactors and project partners, we support Christians around the world under our guiding principle “information, prayer and action”. In addition, we are committed to religious freedom and reconciliation across all faiths. Our long-standing experience and belief in the power of charity has encouraged us to continue on this path and to inspire people for our work around the globe.
