Pakistani Woman Threads New Life from Pain

07/21/2022 Washington D.C. (International Christian Concern) – A few months ago, I sat down with a former ICC staffer, William Stark, who served South Asia’s persecuted community for roughly 10 years. Reflecting on some of the projects that were the most dear to him over the years, he recalled the story of Alishba in Pakistan.

One day at work, she passed by two young Muslim men who made advances toward her, which she turned down. Offended by the rejection, the Muslims later abducted Alishba, assaulted her, and held her captive for several days. By the grace of God, she was able to escape, after which we met with her about a month later.

In addition to trauma counseling, we provided her with a sewing machine and some basic supplies to help her start up her own small business. Over time, Alishba grew a tiny small business into a multi-employee business that fulfils industrial-sized orders. Thanks to your generosity, she is helping to transform the lives of other women in her community who have faced similar tragedies. Thank you for making this work possible!

ICC is on a mission to help persecuted Christians. Will you join us?
