Review of the Year
"Behind every number there is a story: a life saved, a future transformed, someone given new hope and strength. And none of this could be delivered were it not for our supporters - people like you." - Eddie Lyle
It's not Open Doors staff alone who do this. It's not those in the office or even those out in the field. It's all of us – all who work, pray, give, speak out, take action, raise money, make a noise.
We form a chain, so that Christians don't have to live in chains. We're linked. We're family. And when one member suffers, all members suffer.
So this is what we do, together.
We are all Open Doors. And this is what we did last year.
2011 Financial Review
"You crown the year with your bounty, and your carts overflow with abundance." - Psalm 65:11
Statement of Financial Activities for the Year Ended 31 December 2011
In a challenging economic environment and through the sacrificial giving of supporters, income for the year totalled £6,727,255 (an increase of £282,925 over 2010).
As a result of your generosity, Open Doors was able to change the lives of 10,000 Secret Children and provide Bibles, training and an education for many persecuted Christians. Your gifts helped pay for centres where children could be sheltered and pastors trained, as well as enabling many Christians living in Egypt and the Middle East in the midst of the Arab Spring to receive practical support.
Through the financial contributions of our supporters, Open Doors was able to take the first steps in establishing a response centre for persecuted Christians, based in Witney. Thank You!
