Beverly Joseph shares an update on the fundraising initiative for Christian families in need in Pakistan, and outlines how the money raised is alleviating the suffering brought about by the COVID-19 pandemic.
Thank you so much to everyone for your continued support and concern for Christians in Alomahor, Pakistan. They have been helped tremendously by our outreach relief efforts that began in March due to the severity of job loss resulting from the COVID-19 pandemic at the time.
Your continued contributions have been so amazing! The love and compassion you have shown by generously donating has been incredible to witness.
“I thank my God every time I remember you” (Philippians 1: 3).
We are delighted to inform you that many of the families included in the outreach have now returned to work. Even Shera, whose story has been shared previously, is in much better health and has found full-time employment commencing next month as a security guard. This is truly brilliant as it means he will not be required to do heavy manual labour, which would still be too much for him as he looks to recover fully. Thank you to everyone for your kind prayers, it is remarkable to see them answered in such a wonderful way!
There are now 10 families who still require support. Therefore, they were given funds yesterday to buy their own food supplies to the value of supplies they were given before. This is because many of the local shops have now commenced regular business and stocks are more readily being replenished.
We had no idea how long the need would last when we started the outreach. We simply saw a desperate need, tried to meet it, and when it became apparent that we couldn’t meet it on our own, we reached out for back-up support.
Your support, love, compassion, and kindness during these past six months has been more than appreciated. God bless you abundantly!
The 10 families who still require support include those who are physically challenged and widowed ladies. Pakistan does not have a social welfare system, and they are left without a means of support.
Therefore, if you would still like to contribute, please feel very welcome to do so. Any contributions would be greatly appreciated.
Take care and stay safe : )
