On August 16, 2023, a devastating event unfolded in Jaranwala, Punjab, Pakistan. A mob set fire to multiple churches and nearly 90 homes, leaving the Christian community in a state of ruin and despair. In these trying times, Redeem the Oppressed, in direct partnership with ECSPE, is committed to being a beacon of hope and relief for those affected by this calamity.
Immediate and Compassionate Action
Our specialized rescue team in Pakistan, which shares the same core board as ECSPE, sprang into action without delay. On August 31st, we distributed essential household items to 50 families who were severely impacted by the Jaranwala incident. These families had lost everything, from their homes to their sense of security. Our ongoing mission is to extend our aid to the remaining affected families in the coming weeks.
Funding Update: Your Support is Crucial
We are grateful to announce that we have successfully raised $20,000 to fund our relief efforts in Jaranwala. However, we are still short of $30,000 to fully fund the distribution of essential supplies to the affected families. Your support, whether through financial contributions, prayers, or spreading awareness, can make a monumental difference in the lives of those in need.

We invite you to be a part of our mission to support persecuted Christians in Pakistan and other regions. Your contributions, whether financial or through prayers, can significantly impact the lives of those enduring persecution for their unwavering faith.
