ETHIOPIA & ERITREA APPEAL
During the past two years, more than 30 churches have been attacked in Ethiopia – with about half burned to the ground. Around 100 Christians were killed in these attacks.
In neighbouring Eritrea, the last 12 months saw government troops forcibly confiscating 21 hospitals, health centres and clinics run by the Catholic Church. More than 150 Christians have been arrested because of their Faith.
As Christians come under increased attack across the Horn of Africa, ACN has redoubled support for our suffering brothers and sisters.
Aid to the Church in Need is supporting a wide range of pastoral projects to foster the Faith as it comes under fire – including helping to pass it on to the next generation.
