In the build-up to the UN’s International Day to Commemorate the Victims of Acts of Violence based on Religion or Beliefs, ACN has called on the UK government to step up help for those persecuted for their faith.

The UN highlights acts of violence against believers on 22nd August, and ACN, supporting persecuted Christians, said enough isn’t being done to stop religious persecution.

Dr Caroline Hull, national director ACN (UK), said: “As the Conservative Party chooses its next leader, we at ACN implore the new Prime Minister to prioritise bringing an end to violations of Freedom of Religion or Belief (FORB)."
ACN will be launching Persecuted and Forgotten: A report on Christians persecuted for their Faith 2020-22 in November this year which highlights the situation for Christians in 24 countries including China, Pakistan, Nigeria, Mozambique and Afghanistan. Please click here to read more.

Transporting Aid 

In Ukraine, hard-to-reach displaced communities are also crying out for support. ACN is working to make sure they get the aid they need:
“Transport vehicles are also urgently needed. In many cases, the humanitarian aid has to be transported across long distances, on roads that are either in very poor condition or have been destroyed,” said ACN’s Head of Ukraine Projects Magda Kaczmarek, who visited the country recently. 
ACN has now responded to this need, providing 19 vehicles to ferry relief supplies and allowing priests and Sisters to visit displaced families to provide pastoral and spiritual care. Please click here to offer hope by making a kind donation to support the Church in helping the refugees.
