Sunday the 25th - INTERNATIONAL CHRISTIAN VOICE - Free Joomla 3.2 Templates

Our Mission: 

The International Christian Voice exists to glorify God by being Canada’s effective and reliable source of information and support of the marginalized

Our Purpose:

  • To be a voice for the voiceless

  • To provide ongoing support for the helpless

  • To take immediate action against persecution

  • To achieve equal rights for minorities in Pakistan

  • To obtain justice to help uplift the minorities of Pakistan 

Our Values:

Being Christian, it is our responsibility to worship God, obey Him and take guidance from His Word. We believe every person should be treated equally and their Human Rights and Religious Freedoms should not be oppressed by any religious rule. 

We welcome people of all faiths and denominations to join this struggle for justice. In a world of injustice and oppression, we must pull together to defend and support the most vulnerable and often neglected members of our family; the persecuted.

Solidarity with Others

The ICV fact-finding team obtains current and accurate information about incidences of discrimination, persecution, or other forms of victimization. With the gathered information, the ICV committee strategizes plans to reach out and stand in solidarity with those who are suffering, as well as tailoring practical responses to their identified needs. To achieve this objective, ICV uses its ties with the global community, including governmental officials at all levels, public representatives, NGO’s and other such agencies.

Struggling for Justice

Supporters around the world are central to ICV’s advocacy initiatives. ICV’s committed supporters are in continuous contact via e-mails, phone and other sources.

Spreading the Mission

Information gathered with the help of ICV networks around the world is made available to the public and the media via press releases, press conferences, radio/TV interviews, seminars and bulletins. Our team of speakers travels throughout Canada and beyond to inform and equip others to pray, protest against and provide required assistance for victims of mistreatment.

Pakistani Christian Asylum Seeker Dies in IDC, Bangkok, Thailand

International Christian Voice (ICV) is very saddened to learn that 36-year-old Pakistani Christian asylum seeker Mr. Ijaz Paras Masih has died in Bangkok, Thailand while in an Immigration Detention Centre. He had been facing serious health concerns for many months and succumbed to his illness on May 26, 2017 due to a lack of medical treatment.

In the IDC, his health deteriorated substantially. His first heart attack occurred last year and he had become paralyzed since. He repeatedly requested Thai officials in the IDC to provide him with the appropriate medical treatment but it was not provided to him, ultimately leading  to  his death. Ijaz Masih is sadly not the first Pakistani Christian who has died inside a detention centre due to the negligence of Thai Authorities and local UNHCR officials. Many other individuals and families continue to suffer from the maltreatment and inhumane conditions inside Thai IDCs.
