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.

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
