What does your organization do?


ChinaAid provides assistance to persecuted people groups and rights activists located in China. We accomplish these goals via our 3 E’s: exposing the abuses, encouraging the abused, and equipping leaders of persecuted groups.

ChinaAid exposes the oppression by writing news stories on them in both English and Chinese. We also have an advocacy initiative, in which we testify in front of prominent policymakers and government bodies, including the U.S. Congress and the United Nations. For more information, please click here.

Often, persecution also puts families under duress. In order to encourage the abused, we developed our Family of Prisoners fund, which provides for their various needs. One example of this is the Lin Zhao Freedom Award, which grants a cash prize to people who have made great sacrifices for their promotion of freedom and democracy. For more information on the award, please click here.

ChinaAid also equips people undergoing persecution by providing theological and legal training for them. This gives them the spiritual fortitude to withstand oppression while facing their legal battles with knowledge of their full rights according to both Chinese and international law.



I really like what your organization is doing. How can I get more involved?


Share our stories on social media, tell your friends, and write to your representatives (Add links for ways to find representatives)! We highly encourage people to spread the word about what is happening in China. This puts pressure on the Chinese government and allows more individuals and world leaders to take a stand against the persecution. Every voice counts!

Are you affiliated with a government?


No, ChinaAid is a 501(c)(3) non-profit organization, meaning we are an entirely separate entity. As such, we do not give out government-sponsored aid.



Where can I obtain Bibles/Christian religious materials in Chinese?


For Chinese Bibles, we suggest those found here.

For Chinese Christian literature, we suggest those found here.



Why does it matter if the US government speaks out in favor of religious freedom and rule of law in China?


Because China wants to be considered a world power, they closely follow what governments and officials say about the current state of China. This is evidenced by how China relies on propaganda on an international scale and the use of the Great Firewall in China to try to maintain control over the Chinese Communist Party’s image.

As such, speaking out is absolutely critical. Otherwise, China’s abuses will go unnoticed, just as they want them to.



Does advocating for prisoners of conscience really make a difference?


Yes! One of the most important impacts of advocacy is the hope that it brings the prisoners that they aren’t forgotten. To actively have people working to get you out and reminding the world of your story can make all the difference in the prisoner’s ability to withstand persecution.

For instance, some of those we’ve advocated for, such as Lawyer Li Heping, were treated better in prison after the media learned about his case. Another attorney, Zhang Kai, was released shortly after ChinaAid reported on his situation!
