Floods worsen already deplorable lives of Pak-Christians

Flood ravaged Christians of Kasur are desperate for food and clean water. Naveed Aziz our Pakistan officer visited Kasur to meet with victims of the massive deluge in Pakistan earlier this month.  Christians living here have received no help or response from the Government of Pakistan or any charities.  They have been affected by the Pakistan floods every year since 2010 and yet no disaster recovery plan or infrastructure has been put in place to enhance their safety or security.  Our work itself was delayed due to the fact that our officer had travelled to Layyah and Gilgit first, both areas where all the Christian communities have survived quite mira...

BPCA Flood Appeal - we have raised £500 in our first week!

The recent deluge in Pakistan has decimated the country and has made millions homeless across the country. Conservative estimates indicate that around 700,000 people have been made homeless and that 3million people have been affected by the floods. Newer reported figures of around 14 million people having been affected by the floods illustrate that the destruction and desolation affecting Pakistan are the worst in their known history. Charities up and down the country have been mobilising to react to the catastrophe in an attempt to bring succour and respite to a beleaguered people, however, as road/rail and other transport links have been destroyed or made unsafe fo...

Sadly General Hospit...

Help For Pakistani Christians In Thailand Fundraiser

In 2015 it's hard to believe that a woman and her husband can be burned alive in front of their children, simply for their beliefs (reference here) In 2015 it's hard to believe that young girls, sometimes only 2 years old, are raped because of the faith they belong to (reference here) It's hard to believe that in 2015 those governments people elect, and put their faith in, provide little protection, instead preferring to turn a blind eye as millions are persecuted in the land they call home (reference here) Parents mourning over the body of Shazia Bashir aged 14 We have become accustomed to hearing stories of adult men raping 14 year old girls, leaving only ...

Caged and abandoned - Pakistani Christians in Bangkok

Increasing discrimination, humiliation, vulgarity, vengeance, hatred, killings and harassments on a daily basis have dried up all tears from the eyes of Christians in Pakistan.  The reality is a that behind those embankments of dry eyes is a huge flood, which is ready to burst open. When Christians leave the country they are considered as “traitors”, but before judging them no one bothers to look into the situation that forced them to leave and suffer in a foreign land where they are forced to eke out deprived existences when once they had plenty albeit under great discrimination and persecution.  Here is a humanitarian crises that is festering. ...

Pakistani Christian refugees shackled and beaten - no end to their misery!

Image of shackled Pak-Christian asylum seekers provided by Pastor Patrick Sarooj  Those relatively few Pakistani Christians who manage to escape to other countries are often not out of danger or trouble.  Even in the UK, we have had at least one instance of a refugee facing physical attacks and false charges typical of Pakistan within a couple of weeks of coming out of the asylum process and into the council housing program of a major Midland city, and abuse within the asylum process is rife, particularly at the detention centres.  However, Pakistani Christians who flee to other countries often have it much, much worse.  Thailand is a case i...
