Every year, Open Doors releases the World Watch List which helps to show where and how Christians are being persecuted for their faith around the world.
The 2017 list sadly shows no sign of an improving situation. Instead, overall, the level of threats, violence and intimidation towards Christians appears to be rising, with Islamic Extremism being a key factor.
But there also some new developments and some countries which have shown a significant rise in persecution towards followers of Jesus.
Watch the video below to see which countries have risen the most on this year’s list.
We support people who are beaten, tortured,
imprisoned, falsely accused, and hated simply for following Jesus.
