Pakistan Appeal 2021
Wiping the tears of persecution
PAKISTAN’S Christians need our help more than ever amid increasing reports of girls suffering abduction, forced conversion and marriage – as well as gang rape and enslavement.
The victims are as young as 12, according to independent research, which states that up to 1,000 Christian and Hindu young women and girls are abducted and abused every year.
With your help, we can support both them and their families.
This report – Wiping the tears of persecution – not only assesses ACN’s projects outreach all across the Christian community but also spotlights the charity’s work for vulnerable and targeted young faithful, especially:
- Legal aid for girls and young women forcibly converted and forced to marry their abductors
- Food, medicine and other daily needs for the families of people falsely imprisoned
- Christian catechesis and spiritual support for families living in fear
- Programmes promoting women’s rights and vocational training for young Christians
