As we know, the world continues to navigate the COVID-19 pandemic. One of the hardest hit countries, according to the New York Times, is Pakistan. Thousands of Christian families, also known as chooras, are treated poorly due to their lowly status in this Muslim country. These untouchables in Pakistan are looked down upon due to their faith and are given jobs no one else will do, such as cleaning sewage pipes beneath the city streets or working at brick kilns.

When government aid was made available, Christians were denied food and were told that the aid was for Muslims only. AMG, through its area partners, is committed to providing these families justice and a better way of living. Thus, we have established a relief camp at the Sablone Shelter and Vocational Training Center to help our subjugated brothers and sisters.

During the COVID-19 pandemic we have received many messages from several brick kiln families asking for help, as they had neither food supplies nor money to purchase food and necessities. They have been fighting to survive in an extremely difficult situation.

With the help of our resource partners, many Christian families working at brick kilns in the area have been provided food and hygiene kits, for which they were very thankful. Some of what we are providing includes:Lentils, Chickpeas, Oil, Rice, Tea, Dry Milk, Spices, Wheat Flour, Sugar, Soap, Multipurpose Cleaner, Face Masks, Gloves, and Hand Sanitizer.

Thus far, we have assisted 200 families during the pandemic in Pakistan, but the need remains great. Our goal is to provide food and hygiene kits to a total of 450 brick kiln families and others in Pakistan.

Everything we do is done in the name of Jesus and for the advancement of the gospel. This has been and will continue to be at the heart of our relief work. AMG is helping believers and non-believers alike as we share what we have with as many people in need as possible. We provide food and relief packages to Muslims because we care about them, and it serves as a means for sharing the Good News. It is important that we demonstrate the love of God with all those He places in our path.

Please continue to pray for safety and God’s provision for Pakistani Christians and for the hearts of Muslims to be open to the gospel. Our national leaders in Pakistan know that the current relief work will end eventually, but following those efforts they will continue to help transform lives for Christ. Thank you for joining us in that effort.
