Pakistani Christians Caught Up In Floods
ICC Note
“I have noticed and seen that Christians are being deprived of the help, relief and support that other people are getting.”
09/17/2011 Pakistan (Christian Today)-Christians in Pakistan are in “grievous distress” as large swathes of Pakistan are once again submerged in water.

Barnabas Fund said some areas were seeing worse flooding than last year, with the equivalent of an entire monsoon season’s worth of rain falling in just a few days.
It warned that Christians were particularly vulnerable because they already live in poverty and are often overlooked in the distribution of aid.

“I have noticed and seen that Christians are being deprived of the help, relief and support that other people are getting.”
Barnabas Fund has launched an emergency appeal to provide food, clean water and hygiene products to Pakistani Christians caught up in the floods.

International Director of Barnabas Fund, Dr Patrick Sookhdeo, said: “In this latest calamity our brothers and sisters in Pakistan have no way to help themselves, and other organisations may never come to their aid.
“They are crying out to us for their very lives. Will you please help us help them to survive?”
