(Washington, D.C-Feb. 7, 2019) ChinaAid delegates continued their advocacy for Chinese human rights and religious freedom in Washington, D.C., today by attending the national prayer breakfast and holding meetings with Congressman James McGovern and a human rights NGO.

During his time with the ChinaAid representatives, McGovern heard the plight of an Uyghur man born in Xinjiang, Kuzzat Altay, whose entire family has spent time in China's concentration camps, where ethnic minority Muslim inmates are starved, tortured, and brainwashed

McGovern also heard from Li Chingyu, the wife of Taiwanese dissident Li Mingche.

After the meeting with McGovern, the delegation headed to Human Rights Watch, where they met with a representative of China Director Sophie Richardson and updated them on the latest human rights abuses in China.

That morning, members of the delegation also attended the National Prayer Breakfast.

ChinaAid exposes abuses in order to stand in solidarity with the persecuted and promote religious freedom, human rights, and rule of law. If you wish to partner with us in helping those persecuted by the Chinese government for their beliefs, please click here to make a charitable donation.
