Vietnam: Woman Burned After Refusing to Abandon Christian Faith


A 49-year-old woman was assaulted by local authorities after she refused to give up her Christian faith. On May 5, 2020, authorities visited Dinh and told her they would help her during the coronavirus pandemic if she would sign a statement giving up her faith. When Dinh refused to sign the document, an official grabbed a kettle of boiling water from her kitchen and poured it all over her legs. Dinh was taken to the hospital, but since her family is very poor, they could not pay for her treatment. And because she is a Christian, she had not been issued health insurance. VOM provided help. “I am so happy and thankful to God for your heart of love,” Dinh wrote. “Please remember me in your prayers.”
