Project: Vietnam – Homes for Persecuted Families

Last year, eight families (around 46 people) were driven out of their village in Vietnam just because of their faith in Christ.

Their houses and land were confiscated and in April 2018 they left Bac Yen, their hometown and stayed in a very poor local Hmong Church.

After being notified of the situation, VOM Australia, with the help of our supporters, stepped in and provided the funds for 6,000 sqm2 of land and used materials to build four houses for them. The project has been completed and since then, three more families arrived and were temporarily settled in.

Since purchasing, the bare land has also been filled with produce and there are now fresh fruits and vegetables growing.

Persecution of Christians varies in Vietnam, it most frequently occurs in the Central Highlands and in the North. Incidents include, imprisonment, harassment, discrimination, threats and attacks. Sometimes, their houses are destroyed by local authorities and other times, they’re forced to leave their villages and move somewhere else for their safety.

As of today, there are eleven families with at least 60 people living in the area but the need for water is necessary. Local pastors are now discussing the plans to drill a well there.
