Aid to the Church in Need ‘Set You Captives Free PetitionOver the last five years, our #RedWednesday campaign has been hugely successful in drawing attention to the human rights tragedy of Christian and other religious persecution. Now a global initiative, endorsed by the UK government, it is time to make #RedWednesday a campaign that can really change lives. Raped, forced to marry and convert, and now facing death threats, Christian girl Maira Shahbaz, 14, from Pakistan, urgently needs asylum. Maira and her family are in hiding from extremists who accuse her of apostasy and want her dead. We invite you to sign the ACN petition calling on Prime Minister Boris Johnson to grant UK asylum to Maira and her family.
