The Raoul Wallenberg Project
Raoul Wallenberg, born August 4, 1912 saved nearly 100,000 Jews from the Nazi occupied Hungary in World War II. He provided safe houses, visas, food and protection to thousands virtually single-handedly along with resources provide by the U.S. government, but those only after many years of lobbying by a few dogged determined people in the USA.
He is recognized as having saved the most people from Nazi death camps in World War II. We honor his work with our own effort to emulate his courage and values with this new project. It is our intention to help, protect and rescue as many as possible from the nearly one hundred million Christians who are facing severe persecution and even death.
75% of religious persecution in the world is against Christians as per a report by “Church in Need”, a Christian organisation based in the UK.
They Examined 33 countries, citing that most of that persecution today is taking place in the Middle East, Africa and Asia.
A startling quote from the study states, “The proportion of countries with a worsening track record of anti-Christian violence and intimidation would be higher were it not for the fact that in many cases the situation could scarcely have been worse in the first place.”
Pakistan is our primary focus for our initial push to save Christians who are suffering from the Blasphemy laws, which are used by Islamic extremists to make up charges against innocent Christians, in order to steal their property and stir up violence against the Christian population.On March 4th the Christian Minister of Minorities Shahbaz Bhatti was gunned down by Islamic extremists causing tremendous fear within the Christian community. Even in the short time since his murder, the violence against Christians has increased dramatically.
The Raoul Wallenberg Project is working with people on the ground who are well connected in the Christian community. They have reached out to us for our support to help alleviate their suffering, and in certain situations, help with their escape. For their protection we cannot expose their names publicly. In the future, large donors who are concerned about the transparency of funding, we can provide the names and details privately.
The work we do is practical. We will be supplying food, medicine, safe houses, legal help for visa applications, and in extreme circumstances, security details for rescue missions.
Our financial goal is to raise one million dollars a month – solely for the Raoul Wallenberg Project – which will allow us to make a significant impact to alleviate much of the suffering of persecuted Christians and remove them from their circumstances. We are working behind the scenes with members of Congress, in particular the staff of Congressman Allen West, who has kindly offered his help on Capital Hill. Other members of Congress will be recruited as public opinion puts pressure on them for their support of this real, and dangerous threat to Christians worldwide.
