Urgent Appeal: Hope Amidst Hardship – Your Help Needed Now More Than Ever

Dear Friends and Supporters,

As I write this, my heart is heavy with the knowledge of the immense suffering our brothers and sisters in Pakistan are enduring. The monsoon rains that usually bring relief from the scorching summer heat have instead brought a new wave of desperation to those already living on the edge.

The brick kilns, those places of backbreaking labor and crushed dreams, have closed due to the heavy rains. While this might sound like a reprieve, it’s anything but. For the families trapped in slavery, including the four we’ve been desperately trying to free, it means no work. No work means no pay, and no pay means no food..

We’ve made progress, thanks to your generosity. Remember Mehboob and his family? They’re now free, building a new life filled with hope. But for every family we free, there are dozens more reaching out to us, begging for help.

Shakeel, who lost his hand in a tragic accident, now watches helplessly as his children go to bed hungry. The widowed sisters, Bhusra and Shakeela, are struggling to keep a roof over their heads while battling disability and cancer. Yousaf’s family of eight is crammed into a tiny, leaking room, praying for the rains to stop so they can earn enough for a meal. And Babar and Chanda are facing the heartbreaking choice between feeding their children or buying medicine for their cancer-stricken daughter.

 

These families, and countless others, are not just statistics. They are people with hopes, dreams, and an unbreakable spirit that amazes me every time I visit. But even the strongest spirit can be crushed under the weight of constant hunger and despair.

I won’t sugarcoat it – donations have been scarce lately. The global economic situation has hit everyone hard, and I understand that. But I’m asking you, pleading with you, to dig deep. Skip a coffee, a meal out, or that new gadget you’ve been eyeing. Instead, consider putting that money towards saving a life.

Every dollar, every cent counts. It’s not just about money – it’s about hope. It’s about showing these families that they’re not forgotten, that someone out there cares.

I’ve seen the difference your support makes. I’ve seen the tears of joy, the disbelief turning to hope in their eyes when we tell them they’re free. Let’s make that happen again, and again, and again.

Please, donate now. Share this appeal with your friends, your family, your coworkers. Be the change these families so desperately need.

Together, we can turn the tide. Together, we can bring hope where there is despair, freedom where there are chains, and love where there is pain.

Thank you for your compassion and generosity. May God bless you abundantly for your kindness.

With heartfelt gratitude and unwavering hope,

Pastor Aneel Saleem & Max Gibson,
Redeem the Oppressed

P.S. Remember, your donation is tax-deductible. But more importantly, it’s life-changing. Donate now and be the miracle these families are praying for
