Covid-19 fuels ‘hidden pandemic’ of abuse towards Christian women

Covid-19 is fuelling a growing, hidden, “shadow pandemic” of gender-based violence, abduction and trafficking, directed towards Christian women and girls around the world. 

This is one of the findings of a new report commissioned by Christian persecution charity Open Doors, due to be released on International Women's Day (Mon Mar 8).

Global Gender Persecution Specialist for Open Doors International Helene Fisher, who authored the report, shares the story of 19-year-old Lucina, highlighting how Christian women are being exploited for their faith.
