CHRISFON - PAKISTAN
ChrisFon is a courageous organization that provides justice for oppressed people in Pakistan. This country ranks near the bottom of the Human Freedom Index. Minorities in Pakistan live with insecurity and injustice. ChrisFon works with two groups of oppressed people. They support people who suffer religious persecution. And they also work to liberate modern-day slaves. People who are persecuted for their belief are beaten, threatened and stripped of their property. ChrisFon finds these people through their network of contacts. They put them in safe houses, and help them rebuild their lives and restore them to their families. Modern-day slaves are either landless serf farmers or indentured workers in brick kilns. It is a long path to successfully liberate people from modern-day slavery. People need to learn their rights. They need to become literate. They need to gain food security. They need to learn to handle money. And they need to get out of generational debt. ChrisFon has a a simple but revolutionary program with proven results in emancipating people from slavery.
