Finally Free: an amazing answer to prayer!
On 9 May Chinese human rights lawyer Li Heping was released and returned to his family, who hadn’t seen him in nearly two years. Just two days later we got the news of the release of Rev Hassan and Mr Abdumawla, two Sudanese men held in a maximum security prison on unjust charges.
Li Heping was released just two days after CSW supporters joined in prayer for him when he was given a suspended sentence. Li was imprisoned two years ago as part of the Chinese government crackdown on human rights defenders.
We’ve been campaigning for Li since his detention, and in October 2016, we presented a petition with 2,148 signatures to the Chinese Embassy in London, calling for his release. If you prayed for Li, signed the petition, or generously donated: thank you!
“When my family fell down you didn’t walk away. You helped us stand up and I thank you for your help.”
