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.
Three men passed away in the filth and scum of Pakistani sewers a job they did professionally, maintaining their dignity despite their low pay and untouchable status.The incident took place on 3rd July 2017 and has barely been mentioned in any media because no-one cares about these insignificant beings - only their families.

Their necessary role in maintaining the cleanliness of the outdated and inadequate sewer system of Pakistan, has never been appreciated. The sanitary men of Pakistan are paid a pittance, are bullied and harassed by their Muslim overlords and are not provided even the merest of protective equipment. Every day they go to work is a day they potentially will not return home but it is a risk they willingly take to ensure food is on the table for their wives and children.
Yesterday our officer Grace Masih visited the families of Saleem Masih, his son Nadeem Masih and colleague Danish Masih, who were killed in yet another tragedy in Pakistan's notorious sewage industry. The incident took place on 3rd July 2017 and has barely been mentioned in any media because no-one cares about these insignificant beings - only their families.
There she counselled the family and described the cruel isolation of the Christian community who live on the fringes of society but have a strong camaraderie between them. The defiant spirit of this community has ensured their survival despite the odds stacked against them. In Britain the number if suicides per year is close to 6000, whereas in Pakistan it is 300. The beleaguered Christians of Pakistan seem to have great resilience and a passion for life that those of us in the west could learn from. Grace visited the graves of victims and shared a time of prayer and thanksgiving for the lives that have now returned to our heavenly father, with the families of the dead sanitary workers.
We have set up an appeal to help the victim families recover from the loss of family members. We have contributed £100 to each family but would like to raise funds to support the families for six months each to help them restore their lives. To fulfil this goal we need to raise £1800 - if you would like to help us reach this target please (click here).
