news from eritrea

Helen Berhane is an evangelical christian singer in Eritrea. Two and a half years ago she was arrested by the authorities for being a member of an unregistered church and incarcerated without charge in appalling conditions.

As part of a campaign which-we-cannot-name, but if you thought about you'd probably be able to figure it out, we wrote greetings cards to Helen this time last year. We were very pleased to hear that she has now been released - however, her injuries from her time in prison are severe and she is confined to a wheelchair.

So, thank you for listening Eritrean government, but please stop persecuting religious minorities.
