Programs and results

What we aim to solve

SOURCE: Self-reported by organization

Global persecution against Christians is increasing, intensifying and spreading. According to the world watch list; 260 M Christians are highly persecuted for their choice to follow Jesus where they live. 9,488 Churches or Christian buildings were attacked. In the top 50 countries during the reporting period, some 2,983 Christians were killed because they follow Jesus. On average, that’s 8 Christians killed every day. 3,711 Christians were detained without trial. As members of the Body of Christ, we are called to support our brothers and sisters in need. Take Heart exists to do just that. We want to tell and show persecuted Christians, "You are not alone."
