Tajikistan is the poorest of the former Soviet states and still suffers from the effects of a civil war in the 1990s. A third of the population is under age 14.

Life for Christians

Most of the country’s 150,000 Christians are Russian Orthodox, but there are also Baptists, Catholics, Lutherans and Korean Protestants. The government must approve the production, importation, export, sale and distribution of all religious materials. Religious groups must be registered, and unregistered religious activity is a crime. It is illegal and difficult for Christian parents to provide a biblical education for their children.

VOM Work

VOM helps several widows and also provides local churches with tools and materials for evangelism.
