HRH The Prince of Wales has released a message describing the “evil” of religious persecution today.
In the video message exclusively for Aid to the Church in Need – and broadcast on BBC Radio 4’s ‘Thought for the Day’ – Prince Charles speaks out against the persecution of Christians, Yazidis, Jews, Ahmadis, Baha’is and other groups and stresses how for some people “religious freedom is a daily stark choice between life and death”.
Inspired by last month’s ACN Religious Freedom in the World 2016 Report, The Prince highlighted the survey’s key finding that extremism is seeking to eliminate all types of religious diversity.
ACN is responding further to the plight and suffering of Christians around the world, with a particular focus on Syria and Iraq.
With your continued support and prayers, relief programmes across the region deliver vital aid including food, medicine, shelter and pastoral support.
