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.
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...Read More
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.

Rescue operations are still under-way, however, relief will take years to fully rehabilitate affected communities and infrastructure will need to start from the beginning. People need food, safe drinking water, shelter and healthcare to survive from the catastrophic effects of this flood. On...Read More
By Shamim Masih BPCA correspondent in Islamabad Incessant rains have killed hundreds of people and damaged thousands of houses throughout Pakistan. Over 500 roads have been submerged and the last body count, which is by no means accurate, suggest at least 340 people have been killed. Since 9th September persistent rains and the release of water from dams in India have brought great suffering on Christian communities. I visited three local flood ravaged areas to assess the needs of innocent victims, left destitute. Many Christian slum areas have been completely washed out. In the main, Christians reside in the flood plains where land is ch...Read More
