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...

Sherish and Farzana: happy, safe and beginning to heal. . In November 2014 the two sisters were the subject of a terrifying and horrific ordeal at the hands of three Muslim boys known to them from their village.  They were targeted by the boys in the early evening, while out using a nearby field as a toilet, and abducted at gunpoint.  The rapists struck because the girls are Christians, despised and deemed easy targets for abuse.  Both their faith and poverty, which meant a total lack of safe facilities, rendered them extremely vulnerable to this kind of attack.   The BPCA has been supporting the family throughout by providing legal counsel, ...

Watery treat for Pakistan Day decided on UN World Water Day!

Image of the BPCA pump we installed for gang-raped Christian teenagers Sherish and Farzana. We are very pleased to announce that the BPCA has received funds to build five water pumps for the deprived Christian community of Jaranwala.  Many living in this community have suffered the ignominy of poor health and regular taunting because of the inability to wash properly and drink clean water.   Poor Christians in this community earn around £600 per year and the boring of pumps would cost over a year's salary.  No help has ever been provided to the Christians of this community despite it being the worst off community in the area....
