Oppression and discrimination towards Christians has only worsened during the Covid-19 pandemic according to Release International.
The charity, which supports persecuted Christians, says many had been denied food and relief aid by governments because of their faith.
Some countries have escalated their crackdowns on Christians.
In China, authorities have “totally prohibited” online church services and prayer meetings.
Release International says the Chinese Government is exploiting Covid-19 to increase its long-running crackdown on Christians.
In many other countries, persecuted Christians have experienced crippling poverty during the pandemic.
Just buying food and paying the rent has become a huge challenge for many impoverished Christians.
