Christian Solidarity Worldwide (CSW) "is a human rights organisation specialising in religious freedom. CSW works on behalf of those persecuted for their Christian beliefs and promotes religious liberty for all.

"The organisation began in 1979 as the UK branch of the Swiss based organisation, Christian Solidarity International, which was founded following an inter-denominational march in protest at the imprisonment of Russian Baptist Pastor, Georgi Vins. In 1997, it was decided to separate from the founding body and the charity adopted the name Christian Solidarity Worldwide.
"Since then, a number of like-minded groups from across the world began working together as international Christian Solidarity Worldwide partners. In addition to CSW-UK, this partnership now includes CSW-Australia, CSW-Hong Kong, CSW-USA, the Norwegian Mission to the East, the All India Christian Council, the Danish European Mission, CSW Burkina Faso and Justice et Solidarité Mondiales (France). There are also currently embryo organisations in Nigeria and New Zealand." [1]
