The Persecuted Church: One Of The Most Hope-Filled Stories On The Planet
Bible Delivery Worldwide
We believe the Bible is the word of God and has the power to transform the life of every man, woman and child.
Open Doors started with the belief that every door is open to go and share the hope of the gospel. That is why we continue to deliver Bibles and other Christian literature into some of the most dangerous places worldwide.
Famine Relief In Nigeria
In 2017 Nigeria, South Sudan, Somalia and Yemen were reported as suffering from the worst famine since World War II.
Christians in Northern Nigeria were among those suffering the most, excluded from receiving emergency food relief because of their faith in Jesus.
Your help provided food packs for 15,000 families - that’s 75,000 people! Each family received a 50kg bag of beans, 100kg of maize, and money for rent, oil and soap.
Your help provided emergency relief for 75,000 Christians in Nigeria.
Rebuilding The Church In Iraq
Since 2014 you’ve helped provide emergency relief for Iraq Christians in need. Last year you partnered with us to help rebuild the church in Iraq and strengthen what remains.
Through our local partners we are repairing church buildings, homes and communities, providing trauma counselling and investing in local Christians with micro-loans and job creation.
A ‘Return Centre’ has also been set up next to the church to accommodate people returning to rebuild their homes.
Your help is rebuilding the church from the ground up in Iraq.
Project - North Korea
In April last year, we asked for your help to fund our work with North Koreans. It was a massive target, trying to raise $84,000 for our persecuted brothers and sisters. Thanks to your help this project was fully funded! Thank you for your faithful support!
In North Korea our work includes supplying believers with emergency relief aid (including food, medicines, clothing etc), distributing Christian materials, providing training through radio broadcasting and discipling North Korean believers who have fled to China.
Your help makes a difference in North Korea.
Support For Martyrs' Families - Secret Country
There are many Christians who pay the ultimate price for their faith - following Jesus costs them their life. Most martyrs leave behind a family that is grieving and in desperate need of care and protection. As part of the body of Christ, we want to be there for these families.
In a country that's too dangerous to name, we have an opportunity to support and care for 11 families in this situation. Our vision is to comfort each family through their loss and share the hope of Jesus with them.
This Project Was Fully Funded In 2016
A Bible For Every Believer - Secret Country
We can’t tell you exactly which country. It’s a place where Christians are heavily persecuted and highly restricted in practicing their faith publicly. Disclosing the name of the country could place the body of believers at risk. We can tell you: Open Doors Australia and New Zealand have committed to raise $68,000 towards the project, it will be completed in 2016, and the Bibles will be in the local language.
Open Doors will partner with local organisations to safely and secretly deliver the Bibles and other Christian literature.

Connecting Isolated Believers - North Africa
This project connects new believers from a Muslim background with Christians in their local area. New believers are often the most vulnerable to persecution, so we want to help strengthen their faith. Through long term local partners, new believers are able to meet up with the right people. Our field workers say it is risky work in areas where persecution is intense, but the work is extremely important.
This project aims to: connect new believers in their local area, and create opportunities for new believers to be encouraged, strengthened and discipled.
