ICC Provides Emergency Aid for Christian Converts in India
07/18/2022 Washington D.C. (International Christian Concern) – In January, five Christian families were forced out of their village in central India after a mob of 200 Hindu extremists threatened them. The extremists beat the village’s pastor and several church members for refusing to convert back to Hinduism. The five families that fled were in dire straits as they did not have food reserves available or the income to keep them afloat.
In response, ICC came alongside these families to provide them with emergency food aid and blankets to keep them warm through the cold winter.
One of the recipients shared, “This is [a] great help for me and my family. I thank you for caring [for] us in this time of scarcity. I am very happy to have food relief from you. I kneel down at the feet of Jesus Christ for you and request you to keep us in your prayers for our wellness [until the] situation becomes normal for us.”
