Sunday the 25th - 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.

SAIRA KHURRAM NEED YOUR HELP 

Saira Khurram went to Thailand in November 2011 with her husband Khurram Ashiq and two children: Mariam Khurram, 6 years old and Musa Khurram, 5 years old, after facing persecution in Pakistan due to their Christianbelief.

Saira Khurram and her husband left everything they owned in Pakistan and applied for refugee status in Thailand. Since their arrival in Thailand they, have faced many problems. Under such dire circumstances, as head of the family, Saira’s husband, Khurram Ashiq, tried his best to support his family but faced many challenges while dealing with the UNHCR and the Thai Government. He suffered from anxiety and depression, which were worsened when his asylum case was refused by the UNHCR. This refusal was very hard on him emotionally and he could not handle the shock, eventually leading to a heart attack that took his life on October 19th, 2017.
