Christian families in dire need of food aid amid COVID-19 crisis in Pakistan

Christians in rural Pakistan currently face starvation. Most of the adults work in nearby factories on subsistence wages. However, due to the COVID-19 pandemic, the factories have closed down.

Pakistan does not have a social security system so the concept of no work and no money is a sad reality for the Christians in the village of Alomahar, north of Lahore, and all over Pakistan.

Some food aid is delivered by the Pakistani government in the big cities, but is often diverted to Muslim communities. Christians are heavily discriminated against, and food aid is no exception.

A small group of family and friends, including the Joseph family in Trim, have teamed up to create food packages and deliver them to families in need. However, the task is huge and the need is incessant.
