The main purpose of the visit was for International Christian Voice to get firsthand knowledge and experience of what is happening with the Pakistani Christians in Bangkok. As the team visited families from home to home and held several round table discussions with asylum seekers, ICV found that the conditions of the Christians living in Bangkok are much more severe than was expected.
