Testimonial of Shamim & Asif’s Family: Rescued from Slavery with the Help of Redeem the Oppressed

A Powerful Testimonial of Redemption

My name is Asif Masih, and this is my wife, Shamim Bibi, and our two children. I was born into a life of slavery, working in kilns. My parents were also born into this life of slavery. We were trapped, working long hours and barely making enough to cover a sparse diet. To make ends meet, we had to take loans from the kiln owners, not realizing that they were just adding to our debt and trapping us even further. We were not allowed to leave, even if we were sick. We lived in despair, waking up at 4am and working until it was too dark to see in the evening.

But then, we were contacted by a nonprofit organization called Redeem the Oppressed. They told us that they could help us escape this life of perpetual slavery and asked us to be ready to meet them past midnight. And they did. They liberated us from the kiln and gave us hope for a better future.

We are grateful to Redeem the Oppressed for rescuing us from this terrible situation. If you would like to support their mission to rescue persecuted religious minorities from slavery and provide them with the support they need to build a better future, please consider donating to their cause.

Together, we can make a difference in the lives of people like Asif, Shamim, and their children.
