Chinese Officials Raid Christian Care Center

China I-compressedGUANGDONG, China (China Aid) More than 100 personnel from multiple government departments raided a Christian care center in China’s southern Guangdong province on Thursday, seized 15 staff members and patients, including an infant, and relocated them to another shelter.

Under the pretense of conducting a medical check-up, authorities forced their way into a Huizhou branch of Guanai (Care) Center, a Christian facility established for the care of people with a variety of medical conditions, despite pleas from local Christians to leave the premises. They forced 15 staff members and patients into a vehicle and moved them to a shelter in Huiyang District.

“According to national regulations, receiving assistance is voluntary,” said Cao Nan, the founder of Guanai Center and director of its Shenzhen branch. “It is not enough to be forcibly dragged into going [to a shelter]. When our people arrived at the shelter, they all expressed that they were unwilling to receive assistance, but the town’s government dispatched public security personnel that did not allow them to return [to our care center], but forcibly contained them in the shelter’s lobby, restricting their personal freedom.”
