It began with a demonstration
AVC was founded in 1972 in Germany in order to help persecuted Christians in the countries which were controlled by the former Soviet Union.
Behind the Iron Curtain AVC visited persecuted Christians and the families of imprisoned Christians.

Through this they experienced help, but most of all they were encouraged, knowing that they had neighter been left alone nor forgotten. Every Bible that reached them, often through great danger, was treasured.

Public demonstrations and events, as well as the magazine „AVC report“, have since then continually pointed to the injustice of Christians being persecuted.

In order to help holistically we spread the Good News of Jesus Christ and do charitable work through emergency relief, development aid and various social projects.
