When a mob of fundamentalist Muslims burned 200 Christian homes to the ground in Lahore, Pakistan, ICC donors wasted no time reaching out to our brothers and sisters in need. Over $60,000 was raised in just four short days, and a few weeks later, aid was distributed to 250 families.
On March 30, the 250 Christian families received the following supplies: a heavy blanket, towels, an iron, a gas stove, a fan, dresses for women and school uniforms for children, socks and undergarments, backpacks and school supplies, cooking utensils, kitchen supplies, water storage container, soap, shampoo, laundry detergent, and a food package.
