Our vision is to create a network of Pakistanis united in Christ, focused on better quality of life, fellowship and religious freedom for Christians in Pakistan and the UK.
Chris Rogers and Wilson Chowdhry sharing a meal with Pakistani Christian asylum seekers in Thailand.
Chris Rogers has been undercover in Thailand to expose how the country treats its asylum seekers. Pakistani Christians fleeing extremist violence are among the second largest group of asylum seekers in Thailand. Many are routinely rounded up and sent indefinitely to immigration detention centres or locked up in jails. Their crime: to be seeking asylum, in a country which does not recognise refugees. Wilson Chowdhry Chairman of the British Pakistani Christian Association helped Chris Rogers, and organised direct contact with victims being helped by the BPCA.

The generous family in the image were extremely distant relatives of Wilson as they are the in-laws of his wife's, brother's fiancée. However in Pakistani terms that obliges Wilson to eat at their home to fulfil custom. The family spent what little they had to feed the whole crew and other visitors in their attempts to show hospitality to a relative, despite Wilson's remonstrations. Don't worry, though the family would not accept any gift, they were duty bound to allow him to give presents to the children. Wilson gave the children Money that would have covered the cost of the food.

After a tiring day it was such a pleasure to share a meal with this gracious family. The room was their bedroom, living room and dining room. A family of ten sleep in this small space. The thin mattresses in the image are their actual beds - nothing has been made up! The male adults in the family all had professional jobs before they had to flee Pakistan for their lives.
