The International Christian Consulate (ICC) was founded in 2015 and established in 2016 as a Non-Governmental Organisation (NGO), to protect the growing needs and interests of Christians in the Middle East, especially those fleeing faith-based persecution or subject to discrimination in their home nations.  


The work of the ICC includes:

  • Raising awareness of Christian persecution in the Middle East and in Europe's refugee reception centres.
  • Provision of emergency support and aid.
  • Provision of integration support and medical care.
  • Giving persecuted Christian refugees access to safe spaces for bible study, discipleship and prayer support.
  • Safe housing victims of persecution.
  • Receiving referrals from NGOs, agencies and Middle Eastern Christian communities.
  • Liaising with UNHCR and European governments on matters related to security, humanitarian aid and shortfalls in refugee aid provisions.
