The authorities are relying on our silence to be able to continue depriving innocent people of their freedom – perhaps hoping that ‘out of sight’ means ‘out of mind’. But we have not forgotten those who are in prison for their faith. And we will not be silent.
Your giving enables us to draw much-needed attention to the injustices that the authorities would rather keep hidden.
A gift of £8 will help us to continue speaking out to secure freedom for those who are imprisoned unjustly, or facing any kind of injustice for their beliefs, all over the world.
Thank you so much to everyone who has already given to support those imprisoned for their beliefs!
