Christians in Manipur are facing a devastating crisis

Tensions turned into violence

Urgent support is needed

On 3 May, the tensions between the Kuki tribe (who are majority Christian) and the majority-Hindu Meitei people in Manipur, India, escalated into violence.

Since the fighting started, believers have been beaten, threatened, visited by extremists, and forced to renounce their faith. Now, thousands of believers have been displaced.

$150 could provide emergency medical aid, food, and shelter to four Christians in India who desperately need it.

Supporting the Church in India


It is important to act now because we have thousands of Christians affected by the violence in Manipur, India, stranded with no houses or source of income.

At one point, they were a strong Christian community; today their churches, homes, and businesses have been burned down to ashes.

Once these needs are addressed, we also need to help them with the long-term practical and spiritual needs. We need to act now so that this once strong Christian community, which was a beacon of hope to Christians throughout the country, can rise again.
