Global Report 5/21/20: Pakistan
WCF and our partner, RAM Foundation, have distributed Food/Hygiene Care Packages to the neediest families in the Lahore region. We have set up a relief distribution station at the Sablone Shelter and Vocational Training Center near Lahore. The Care Package items include rice, pasta, beans, flour, dry milk, soap, multipurpose cleaner, face masks, gloves, and hand sanitizers.
So far, we’ve been able to distribute the Food/Hygiene Care Packages to 200 of the neediest families in this community.
Our partners said - "As the Bible says “And now these three remain: faith, hope and love. But the greatest of these is love”. (1 Corinthians 13:13). The people who received the care packages were very thankful for the love which you showed with your donation. We are trying to help as many families as we can. We need your continuous support in this regard."
In addition, thousands of minority families are stuck in modern-day slavery at brick kilns across Pakistan. During the pandemic, our friends were getting many messages from many brick kiln families to help them as they completely ran out of food. Without any hope of governmental assistance, they were almost without any hope at all, but we have thankfully been able to step into the gap and provide Food/Hygiene Care Packages to 100 families at these brick kilns. They were very thankful for these vital items provided during this difficult time as they literally had nothing.
Please continue to pray for the refugees, IDPs, and the poorest of the poor who have been disproportionately been hurt by the pandemic lockdowns that the Lord would provide for them.
