The Cause

Christian Solidarity International was founded in 1977 in Switzerland by Pastor Hans Stückelberger. CSI exposes religious persecution, demands respect for the God-given right of every human being to choose and practice his or her faith. Since 1995 CSI has been working in Sudan, providing humanitarian aid to people of all faiths who are victims of war and persecution.

Sudan’s radicalized Islamic government has targeted its own citizens with genocide and slavery: Christians in the South and Black Muslims in Darfur. CSI frees slaves, feeds the hungry, and provides medical support to the sick.
