VOM not only supplies food and shelter - they supply everything, and often risk their lives in dangerous countries that do not have religious freedom. The world is rife with injustice and religious persecution that never makes it to the media - VOM is one of the few organizations in the world, reporting on human rights violations world wide, and fights against this injustice.

It seems that it has become necessary to review the reviewers. I have a link which describes more irresponsible use of donations by V.O.M. and I have nixed this organization from my list. They have built a new facility which is 2 stories and has a man-made lake. There was nothing wrong with the former $90,000. offices. One of their staff has an unlimited expense account. I could go on, but do the research yourself and find out the facts.

This organization works to reach and serve persecuted Christians in many nations. They are the hands, feet and heart of Jesus to Christian families, pastors and evangelists who would otherwise receive no aid. I was led of the Lord to sow into this ministry several years ago and am compelled to continue supporting this organization with joy. I know that the fruits and rewards are eternal in Christ Jesus.

This organization serves a niche filled by no other--persecuted Christians in other countries who are often forgotten by larger human rights organizations. Jesus tells us to remember those in prisons and this is the best way to do that. These are people who do not belong in prison at all. The Western Church finds it uncomfortable to think about what is going on in other parts of the world, but Christ told us to face it and deal with it. Many of us do not have the courage to do what these people are doing. The least we can do is to support them financially and through our prayers.

My conviction is to give aid to the children that have a parent in prison for being a Christian is one of the best places to invest in God's Kingdom. When a parent is imprisoned the society will treat their children and remaining parent in society as an outcast and refuse to help them in any way. The parent in prison is deeply concerned for there children out in society and this greatly adds to their afflictions because they can do nothing about it. So I recommend this VOM ministry to help the Children with parents in prison for being Christian. This is a true way to serve Christ Jesus directly, because He said "If you have done it unto one of the least of these you have done it unto me. " Matthew 25

I feel this is still a worthy Christian charity to give to depsite the actions of the executive director. Even if he was/is guilty it doesn't change that this charity helps many persecuted Christians around the world.

We should maybe have a donor advisory when the executive director of an organization kills himself over charges of inappropriate contact with an underage girl. I am saddened by the recent letter from Voice of the Martyrs because I have supported this organization and believe in the goals of helping the persecuted church.

I am sad to see VOM has not received a higher rating. This is a truly unique charity as it focuses in on an unplatable and fairly unmarketable need - providing relief for people persecuted for their Christian faith throughout the world.

Many people may not realise just how many Christians are tortured, imprisoned and persecuted throughout the world on a daily basis. VOM works to be the 'voice' of these people and their families. It lobbies governments for prisoner release, provides financial aid to the victims of persecution, and to their families, and works tirelessly to raise awareness for the plight of persecuted Christians worldwide.

Perhaps its rather unsual name is off-putting. But it is the right name. Hundreds of Christian lives are martyred daily throughout the world.

Our family has supported VOM for many years. We rate their work highly, and will continue to support them no matter what their rating here. They are a real charity, making a real difference.
