Wednesday the 12th - INTERNATIONAL CHRISTIAN VOICE - Free Joomla 3.2 Templates

International Christian Voice is a human rights organization that works to be the voice of the voiceless persecuted religious minorities in Pakistan and around the world. ICV tirelessly works to carry on the mission and vision of Martyr Shahbaz Bhatti by highlighting the plight of suffering communities.  ICV was founded by Martyr Shahbaz Bhatti who sacrificed his life for  this very cause.

ICV FUND RAISINGOn March 3, 2017, ICV is hosting the “Martyr Shahbaz Bhatti Memorial Gala”. The Gala will be held in remembrance of Martyr Shahbaz Bhatti’s life.  This year we will honour Martyr Shahbaz Bhatti’s life by working towards sponsoring Pakistani Christian refugees from Thailand. Thousands of Pakistani refugees have fled their homes in Pakistan to seek asylum in Thailand due to severe persecution. 

All funds raised at the “Martyr Shahbaz Bhatti Memorial Gala” will be used to sponsor one family of four from Thailand. This family consists of three young children and their mother.  The family fled Pakistan to escape death threats and while living in exile in Thailand, the children lost their father to a heart attack. This family has no means to survive on their own and they need your help. To help this family under the private sponsorship program of Immigration Canada, our goal is to raise $30,000. This will cover one year of their expenses. We however, can not do this without your help.  Alone we will not be able to achieve this goal, but TOGETHER WE CAN!

We appeal to you to support this event generously.

TRIP TO THAILAND, MALAYSIA AND PAKISTAN

APRIL 30- MAY 15, 2018

International Christian Voice is committed to highlighting the plight of persecuted, marginalized,

and vulnerable religious minorities in Pakistan.

In pursuance of our goal to successfully bring to Canada our most recently sponsored refugee family - for whom our community and friends have so generously donated to meet their financial obligations - it became necessary to visit Pakistan and Thailand to assess firsthand the difficulties from which this family and others are suffering. Further, it is important for ICV to educate and bring awareness to asylum seekers on how to properly apply for Canadian immigration under Canada's Private Sponsorship Program and other programs.During the sponsorship process, ICV encountered a serious roadblock when the office of the UNHCR did not accept the application for our sponsored family, claiming that since the husband died in Thailand, his wife and children were no longer in danger in Pakistan and hence should go back to Pakistan.
