2021 First Quarter Update

We are proud to report that in the first quarter of 2021, we have set free 36 families (185 people). These families are all settling into new jobs and new communities. Many have been able to send their children to school for the first time!

2020 Fourth Quarter Update

We are proud to report that in the fourth quarter of 2020, we set free 34 families (159 people). These families have all been transitioned into new jobs and new communities. For our team in Pakistan, there is no greater joy than sharing with a family that their debt is being paid in full!

But without exception, they are all overcome with gratitude!

2020 First Quarter Update

As the New Year dawned, we certainly did not anticipate the global impact that Covid-19 would have on our lives, our communities and our countries. Pakistan remains in lockdown at this time so our present focus is on supporting our team there and helping with emergency aid for families who are in need of basic supplies. We are very thankful for donations we have received to enable this.
