There are 200 million Christians living in areas where persecution is severe and another 400 million living in areas where they are at risk.
This loss of freedom violates the Universal Charter of Human Rights and in some countries, it even occurs with official complicity – in violation of rights established in national constitutions.
Christians are persecuted in nations governed by totalitarian regimes – religious and secular – which are intolerant of any worldview which challenges their absolute power over people.
This applies in over 50 nations of the world, including North Africa, the Middle East, China, south Asia and many nations of the former USSR.
