MORE ABOUT THIS COUNTRY

The gateway from Asia to Europe, Uzbekistan is Central Asia’s most populous country. The lucrative drug trade flows through this gateway, yet the country remains impoverished. Every autumn, the government requires over one million adults and children to pick cotton, ranking Uzbekistan second on the list for global modern-day slavery. Since the new government came to power in 2016, there has been an increasing commitment to reforms and improved relationships with other nations in the region.

MORE ABOUT THIS COUNTRY

Egypt is listed in 20th position in the World Watch report 2021 by Open Doors for Christian persecution with a slight increase in overall opposition to Christians. The current president of Egypt is Abdel Fattah el-Sisi. Although Egypt’s government speaks positively about Egypt’s Christian community, the lack of serious law enforcement and the unwillingness of local authorities to protect Christians leave them vulnerable to all kinds of attacks. Due to the dictatorial nature of the regime, neither church leaders nor other Christians are in a position to speak out against these practices. Christians of all backgrounds face difficulties in finding new places for communal worship.
