€643 has been raised in a matter of weeks by parishioners, the Joseph family, in aid of Christians in rural Pakistan who face starvation amid the COVID-19 pandemic.
The global emergency has forced factories to close. Many Christians in the village of Alomahar, north of Lahore, and indeed all over Pakistan now have no source of income as the country does not have a functioning social security system.
While food aid is delivered by the Pakistani government to large cities, it 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, continue to create food packages and deliver them to families in need. However, further funds are required to support their valuable work and provide a lifeline for Christian families at a time of great need.
Any contribution you could make to this cause, no matter how small, would be much appreciated. To donate, click here to visit the project’s GoFundMe page.
