Hundreds of Christians are imprisoned in Eritrea in appalling conditions in prisons, police stations and shipping containers. Many church leaders have been incarcerated for over 13 years – without any contact with their families.

Visit our Prisoners Page to read some of their stories.

Church in Chains is asking you to show that you support them by sending a postcard to the Eritrean government. We have designed two postcards – one addressed to President Isaias Afewerki in Eritrea and the other addressed to Estifanos Habtemariam Ghebreyesus (the Eritrean Ambassador to the UK and Ireland, based in London).

By sending off a postcard, the call to “Release Christian Prisoners” will be conveyed to all who see it in Eritrea and the UK – including postal officials and civil servants.

Order extra postcards

Could you spread the word about the postcard campaign?

  • Ask your church leader to announce it one Sunday and have postcards available for people to use
  • Bring some postcards to your small group
  • Encourage your family and friends to send off postcards
