Serving Persecuted Christians Worldwide - In Memory - Open Doors UK & Ireland
Giving in memory of your loved one

You want to make sure that the memory of someone you love lives on. One wonderful and meaningful way you can do that is by supporting a cause that was dear to them.

Thank you for considering Open Doors and persecuted Christians as you choose how best to remember your loved one. If you choose to make a gift in their memory, future generations of the worldwide church will be equipped to follow Jesus, despite facing persecution and opposition. Your loved one’s legacy will live on.

Making a lifetime of difference

“You have never known our faces and you don’t know our names, but you love us.” That’s the message a secret Christian from North Korea sent to Open Doors supporters. Your gifts and prayers are keeping 60,000 North Korean Christians alive through secret networks in China. A gift can really help believers survive.

A gift can also offer long-term support. Thirteen-year-old Sele in Nigeria lost his dad, who was killed for his faith. Now Open Doors partners are funding his schooling, and supporting his mother.

“One day, I want to be a doctor,” Sele says. “I want to save lives and help people. I want to say thank you to the brothers and sisters who are helping me.”

Every day, millions of Christians risk their lives to follow Jesus. In more than 60 countries, Open Doors supports them by supplying Bibles, providing emergency relief and helping persecuted believers stand strong for the long-term.
