Further unrest in Pakistan:

Extremists wreak havoc around Pakistan:
Reports recently received from Pakistan confirm news bulletins that bloodshed has returned to Pakistan once again. The extremists have focused on the Christian communities in Lahore as well as in other cities and towns leaving many Christian families broken and bereaved.

Above crowds gather in advance of the attacks as they burn loot and destroy homes and businesses, below you can see the extent of the violence and needless destructionMany families have to deal with brutal injuries as well as the deaths of family/community members. Below a seriously injured man receives treatment after the attacks.

Many mourners come under the cover of darkness to pay their respects to the dead and to support those who have lost loved ones.

Good News from Pakistan!

Improved political situation:
News which has just reached us from Pakistan is very positive. I am reliably informed that the political situation in Lahore and surrounding areas has markedly improved recently making it a much safer place for, in particular Christians to live.

Recent attacks on Christians have left many dead or injured or homeless. The cry from Pakistan remains however 'Can you help us'? The circumstances for Christians in general, though relieved by the reduction in violence, remains poor. There is a great need for practical support in terms of daily necessities in the short term and in the longer terms income generating and education projects.

Christians remain poor due to their position in society, children beg, women can only do menial jobs and men are disrespected as a result of their faith in Christ.

In order to help in this situation Mission International is raising funds to begin projects in support of those who are worst affected by this situation.

Please help!

Homes under the 'Hammer'!

Pakistani Christians lose everything:
Many Christians in Pakistan have lost everything due to the brutality meted by Islamic extremists. Homes are burned down and many killed or severely injured.

Mission International has offered a hand of support to those caught up in the violence and who have lost family members and property including their family homes. If you would like to contribute to the Pakistan Appeal please use the links at the top right of this page. Mission International will need in the region of £3500 to help this group of Christians get their injured to hospital and to rebuild their homes.
Nothing but the walls remain in the homes which have come under attack.
In the foreground of the picture below you will see a food grinding unit left behind as people escape the torrent of abuse.
The cement footprint and some of the walls still stand but the house is ruined and will be rebuilt when funds become available.

Pakistan's Brutality to Christians:

Pakistani Christians receive help after brutal attacks:
Over many years but particularly in recent days it has been tough to be a Christian living in Pakistan. Tolerance toward Christians has all but disappeared throughout the country as Islamic extremists brutalise those who profess Christ as Saviour and Lord.

Mission International has begun a 'Pakistan Appeal' to raise funds to help those who are in need after the attacks on their lives, their homes, their livelihoods and their churches.

Please Help!
