Help for the Persecuted Church

This is our “Where Most Needed” fund. This ministry fund helps support the Church in hostile and restricted nations, assists with our funding for special projects or emergency funds for persecuted Christians, and helps us to share the stories of the persecuted through our initiatives here in New Zealand. All donations to this fund are eligible for the IRD tax credit.

Christmas Blessing

Buy a Christmas gift for children of persecuted Christian families

Each year, Voice of the Martyrs distributes Christmas blessing packs to ensure many children in restricted nations receive a gift at Christmas. Children of persecuted families can be particularly vulnerable to discrimination, harassment and bullying. In restricted nations, persecution often brings poverty and hardship so parents of persecuted children are unable to provide gifts at this special time of year.

This year we want to bless children from Pakistan, Afghanistan, Colombia, Burkina Faso, Myanmar, Egypt, Vietnam, Philippines, Cameroon, Iraq and Nigeria.

Each child will receive items tailored to their specific country – Eg a backpack, children’s Bible or storybook, clothing, school supplies, a toy, hygiene items.

Contents are sourced locally and the packs are distributed by VOM frontline workers.

Ukraine Aid

This project is coordinated by VOM Poland by supporting Polish Evangelical churches and NGO’s who minister to the refugees along the border with Ukraine and the Moldavian churches who are welcoming and providing shelter to the refugees. We are providing funds for shelter, food, hygiene items, blankets, gasoline (many Christians are going back and forth to the border in their private cars to transport the refugees), and even washing machines and dryers to wash their clothes because they have been travelling for 2-3 days with just backpacks.

We’ re also supporting Ukrainian Christians inside the Ukraine, bringing aid to over one million IDPs crammed into the western Ukraine; and to those stuck in the eastern Ukraine war zone (it’s very dangerous to travel, but Christians and others are still able to reach Kiev and Charkiv).

Bibles and Literature

Getting God’s word and Christian literature into the hands of persecuted Christians – This project helps VOM print and smuggle Bibles in local languages to believers in restricted nations which often deny them access to their own Bibles. This includes New Testaments and full Bibles in both print and digital formats, Bible commentaries and Bible study materials, MP3 and media players and other inspirational Christian training materials. 100% of gifts made to this fund go to VOM Bibles and Literature projects overseas.

Buy a Motorbike for a Front-Line Worker

Help provide motorbikes for frontline ministry workers. Each motorbike costs about $2,000. 100% of gifts made to this fund will go to the mission field for use to purchase motorbikes for pastors, evangelists and Christian workers involved in pastoral ministry and evangelism . This donation is NOT eligible for the IRD Tax credit.

Bibles (set of 5)

This fund helps VOM print and smuggle Bibles in their own language to believers who reside in restricted nations, which often deny them access to Bibles. This includes producing New Testaments and complete Bibles in both print and digital formats, Bible commentaries and Bible study material, MP3 and MP4 players and inspirational Christian training material. Our intent isn’t to distribute as many Bibles as possible. Instead, our intent is to provide Bibles to those who have the least access to them and who live in areas that are hostile to Christianity.

Families of Martyrs

Helping the families of the persecuted – VOM provides financial assistance for families of Christian martyrs and prisoners until they can find alternative methods of support. This project fund includes help for families with prison visitation, education and orphanages for children impacted by persecution, micro-businesses for income support, training programmes, and even safe houses for Christians whose lives are in danger. 100% of gifts made to this fund go to help Families of Martyrs overseas. This donation is NOT eligible for the IRD Tax credit.

Frontline Ministry Support

Sharing the Gospel and Making Disciples – This ministry fund directly helps share the hope of the gospel and build the Church in restricted nations by supporting pastors, evangelists and full-time Christian workers who minister in the face of hostility and persecution. This project fund includes support for underground Bible colleges, leadership training, provision of evangelism resources, IT equipment and software, transportation (like bicycles for pastors), support programmes; and helps equip churches with resources. 100% of gifts made to this fund go to empower the local church overseas to reach their people and nation for Christ, despite persecution. This donation is NOT eligible for the IRD Tax credit.

VOM Operational Fund

This funds the operational and administration costs of our New Zealand based ministry. All donations to this fund are eligible for the IRD tax credit.

VOM Medical

Providing Medical Care for Christians Impacted by Persecution VOM Medical provides medical assistance for believers who have been injured through a direct case of persecution. Assistance for hospital check-ups for released prisoners, surgery, all prescriptions and medicines, prosthetics, as well as specialised counselling and long-term rehabilitation if needed. 100% of gifts made to this fund go to VOM Medical projects overseas.

Help for Afghanistan

After the withdrawal of the US military the Taliban has overrun the country and this has caused many expatriates and Afghans to flee the country.

VOM is specifically working to extract a number of Christian families and church leaders who are now finding their movements impeded due to the many Taliban checkpoints operating within the country. 

As time is of the essence we need your prayers and support to move rapidly in an effort to save their lives. Followers of Jesus Christ — our brothers and sisters — live in every province of Afghanistan. They know that in the eyes of the Taliban they are infidels who deserve death.

If you would like to donate specifically to our work with Christian families inside Afghanistan, please use the following code: 95.465
