The Legal Defence Fund provides resources for believers who have been arrested because of their Christian witness. Many of them are often denied, or cannot afford, adequate legal representation. Legal fees can bankrupt families and churches. Court cases can drag on for months and even years. The difference for those who have no legal representation, and those who do, can be a significant reduction in the number of years detained in prison. This fund enables persecuted Christians to receive the best legal assistance possible under the circumstances.

The Legal Defence Fund also seeks to educate and equip persecuted Christians so they will be effective advocates in their own communities, not only for religious freedom but also when dealing with other important social issues that affect their faith community.
