victims wait for help in Korian

With the generous help of Christian Aid donors, a ministry based in Pakistan was able to contribute significantly to help rehabilitate the persecuted people of Korian. A certain amount was distributed to each affected family for immediate help. The ministry also helped families with patees (a steel trunk). Twenty-five boxes were provided on a weekly basis, handcrafted by local Christian laborers, providing income to their families, and are given to each family. Each family also received one pedestal fan. The leader shares, “Where death once danced, now there is a new town altogether.”

A new school has been developed in Korian for the benefit of dislocated children. It started operating on November 31st 2009. The school is doing well, with 105 boys and girls. The leader writes, “with some help from Christian Aid and other sources, the project has materialized. According to one parent, it has been a milestone in the history of the people of Korian!”

Thank you again for your continued support to the people of Pakistan.
