On October 25, 2015 International Christian Voice visited Bangkok, Thailand to visit the Pakistani Christian asylum seekers and refugees. The ICV team consisted of Peter Bhatti, Tanveer Joseph, Sara Joseph, Nitasha Bhatti and Melissa Augusto. The visit lasted for a week and the team returned back to Canada on November 3, 2015.ICV deligation going to IDC center

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.

Progress Report on the Faris Family

In November 2015, International Christian Voice visited Pakistani Christian refugees in Thailand to survey the severity of their living conditions. During our visit, we met the Faris family and heard their story. Mr. Ayub Faris and his family fled from Pakistan to save their lives after an attempted kidnapping of his 16 year old daughter, Aanya, was made by a local Islamic fundamentalist. Fortunately, she was able to escape, but the perpetrator remained adamant on kidnapping her and forcing the family to convert. In this dire situation, the quickest and easiest option for the family was to flee to Thailand.
