How SUN saves lives

The Secular Underground Network connects freethinkers, humanists, atheists and everyone that believes in freedom of thought. Some of our members experience exclusion from their family and friends, some get threats or are imprisoned for what they believe. Besides sharing stories and news, we intend to support these people financially. Currently we are helping:

  • a Pakistan family where the father is imprisoned for blasphemy
  • several Afghan atheists who are living in the shade to prevent being persecuted by the Taliban
  • a Somali family that was able to flee the country but needs to build up a life
  • an Indonesian couple that is expelled from the family and jobs because they left religion.
  • a young, black, gay man in Yemen, that suffers from medical issues, harassment and discrimination.

With more regular donors we can help more people to survive and build up a future in freedom.
