Keith Davies Executive Director of Rescue Christians
Rescue Christians has been working also very hard on the ground in Pakistan. Our teams have been doing some major research and we have now identified a further 350 Christian families (around 3000 people) who are enslaved by cruel Muslim kiln owners. A few days ago shoebat.com reported on the outrageous and tragic murder of a Christian couple who were burnt alive at one of these kiln’s. If only we knew of their predicament in time, as we had already freed six families from another kiln less than one mile away.
To save 350 families may take as much as five months to complete but our goal to to do it in two months and have all the families freed before Christmas. The biggest challenge is not just the funds to do this work but the logistics. We need to find at least 350 new jobs, that is one job that has a living wage for the bread winner of each family. In Pakistan we have one person in our team of rescuers whose task is just to locate employment for the families we release from bondage. Our program is tailored to take Christian families from abject poverty (that is poverty Americans cannot really understand until one witnesses it for one self) to lower middle class. One day they have absolutely nothing other than the shirts on their back, all of a sudden to a place they can call home that has running water, proper toilet facilities, electricity and a income that can support themselves properly. Once the family is sprung form slavery we purchase them food for a few weeks, kitchen utensils to cook, bedding and some basic clothes. The approximate cost to do this is only $600 total per family.
From our research we believe there are 20,000 Christian families spread throughout Pakistan who are suffering under this slavery. We have located 350 actual cases that are now on the “waiting list” for freedom. In the last 6 weeks we have released over 60 families, you can see many of their testimonies by visiting
On the You Tube page you will see dozens of testimonies as evidence of our work and to expose the scale of this problem. We still have a backlog of nearly 30 testimonies we still have to post. Please pray that we can free the 350 families and give a Christmas gift of freedom for hundreds more families.
We hope to have more news in the very near future on our project to rescue the 20,000 Iraqi and Syrian orphans and as progress is made we will report.
Sponsor the rescue of a family from slavery or just give what you can afford to help save the lives of your Christian brethren.
