Breaking Free: The Transformative Power of Rescuing Waris & Family from Slavery
My name is Waris Masih, and this is my immediate family – my son Sarfraz Masih with his wife, my wife Shanaz Bibi, and my daughter. For over 30 years, my parents were trapped in a cycle of exploitation, forced to work in kilns to pay off a debt that was incurred through deceit and manipulation by the kiln owners. Despite working endless shifts without a single day off, even during holidays, we received pay that was barely enough to feed and sustain our family. Every time a significant event, such as a marriage or a death in the family occurred, we were forced to borrow more money from the kiln owners, trapping us in a cycle of debt and poverty.
We were paid far less than the minimum wage, and all of our earnings were claimed by the kiln owners to pay off the loans. We felt hopeless and trapped, but that all changed when Redeem the Oppressed came into our lives. They rescued us from this situation, resettling us in a safe place far from the kilns, and providing me with a good-paying job. We are forever grateful to the team at Redeem the Oppressed for liberating us from this cycle of exploitation and oppression. May they be blessed for their selfless efforts to help those in need.
