2021 Fourth Quarter Update

We are proud to report that in the fourth quarter of 2021, we set free 44 families (214 people). In the same quarter last year, we redeemed 34 families so it is a huge encouragement to us that in spite of global challenges, the bonded-labour slaves of Pakistan have not been forgotten!

We want to thank and honour you for your contributions to this project. It is a labour of love that we couldn’t do without you, and so we are incredibly grateful for your support. I hope you can take a few minutes to read some of the heartwarming stories from the last three months, and enjoy the fruit of your love and generosity.

2021 Second Quarter Update

We are proud to report that in the second quarter of 2021, we have set free 41 families (187 people). Each of these redeemed families have their own special story about how they ended up in bonded-labour slavery and what their plans are for the future but one thing they all share is a deep gratitude towards those who gave them this gift of freedom.

Put yourself in their shoes for a moment… can you imagine being told that people you’ve never met, from a country you’ve never heard of, who don’t even speak your language, love you enough to want to pay your debt in full? It’s hard to imagine what they must be feeling!

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!

Our team in Pakistan have also been busy following-up on families to check their wellbeing. We recognise that leaving the brick kilns is only the first step on their journey into freedom. Enjoy the follow-up stories below from some of our redeemed families as they reflect on their journey so far.

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! The emotional response from families is so varied – some laugh, some cry, some are beyond excited, some are so weak with exhaustion that they can hardly speak. 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.

2019 Third Quarter Update

We are always amazed at the immense impact that a small donor base can have. It reminds us of when the Apostle Paul said “I planted, Apollos watered, but God gave the increase.”

We are proud to report that in the third quarter of 2019, we set free 33 familes (138 people). Families who despaired of life itself now have a hope and a future!
