Freeing Hope – An Urgent Campaign to Liberate Five Christian Families from Slavery


In the harsh landscapes of brick kilns in Pakistan, lives are marked by the weight of relentless toil and unpayable debts. Redeem the Oppressed, a U.S.-based organization dedicated to liberating the enslaved and empowering the marginalized, is spearheading an urgent campaign called Freeing Hope. This initiative focuses on rescuing five Christian families currently ensnared in a vicious cycle of forced labor in these kilns. (Note – Video footage was placed near the end of the article)

The Families and Their Struggles:

1. Mehboob Masih and Family: Mehboob, a widower, strives alongside his daughter Aisha and their other children under brutal conditions. Tragically, Aisha was burned by the kiln owners for her defiance.

2. Shakeel Masih’s Family: After a devastating accident that cost him his hand, Shakeel, his wife Salma, and their children face acute poverty. We need to clear their debt and establish a small business for Shakeel, providing a sustainable future.

3. The Sisters, Bhusra and Shakeela: These widowed sisters, each grappling with grave challenges including disability and cancer, carry the burden of raising their children in oppressive conditions.

4. Yousaf Mustaq Masih’s Family: Yousaf, incapacitated by an accident, his wife Nabila, and their six children live in dire conditions. We need funds to free themselves from debt and fund a business, paving the way for a stable, secure life.

5. Babar Masih and Chanda Bibi: This couple, along with their children, face the added torment of their daughter’s battle with cancer. They urgently require financial help to free themselves from bondage and address their daughter’s medical needs.

Campaign Goals and Fund Usage:

The collective goal for this campaign is to raise around $10,000. These funds will directly pay off the families’ debts to the kiln owners, establish small businesses for sustainable income, and cover immediate healthcare needs, ensuring a new beginning for each family.

The Urgency and Impact of Your Contribution:

Immediate contributions are critical. They not only free individuals from physical bondage but also restore dignity and hope. Our past campaigns have successfully liberated over 1,000 individuals, demonstrating the profound impact of timely support.

In the words of these families, “Please help free us so we can live with freedom and dignity.”

Every donation, no matter the size, can make a significant impact. We also welcome donations during our upcoming fundraising events.

Our Commitment:

At Redeem the Oppressed, we are committed to the long-term well-being of those we rescue. Our board member and rescue team leader, Pastor Aneel Saleem, lives in Pakistan and is personally and spiritually motivated to ensure the sustained welfare of every individual we free. Your support not only helps us break the chains of slavery but also provides ongoing care and support for these families as they rebuild their lives.

Call to Action:

We urge you to act now—your support can turn despair into hope and bondage into freedom. Join us in this crucial mission by donating today and help us bring light into the darkest of places.

Accompanying this campaign are heart-wrenching images and videos of the families and their living conditions, which underscore the critical nature of this appeal. These visuals not only tell a story of hardship but also of the resilience and hope that your support can bolster. Together, we can redeem the oppressed and pave the way for a future where freedom and dignity prevail.
