Project Christmas Blessing 2023 will bring hope and cheer to the impoverished children and families in the brick kilns of Pakistan. The lifechanging story of Jesus Christ will be shared with thousands of people and they will be blessed with practical gifts and food items.
There are 18,000 brick kilns in Pakistan where 60 billion bricks are made each year with manual labor. The brick kiln industry is notorious for its labor abuses, including low wages, child labor, and bonded labor. The workers are often deprived of basic necessities such as healthcare, education, and sanitation. It is reported that 1 in 20 families have a child who has lost eyesight. Twenty percent of people working in the kilns have lung problems.
The PCB distribution will help alleviate the suffering of these workers and will provide much-needed relief to these impoverished families. Many minority Christians are trapped in a cycle of indentured servitude that essentially equates to modern slavery. These workers are ensnared under colossal debt that creates a cycle of poverty from generation to generation.
A small team from the USA administered PCB 2019 among brick kiln workers. We anticipate an even greater outreach with PCB 2023. A team from the USA will once again visit 1000s of children in the brick kilns and share with them the simple yet beautiful story of Jesus Christ. This is a wonderful opportunity to share love with our fellow Christians in Pakistan who continue to face opposition and persecution for their faith. There will also be distributions in two schools that are supported by Africa Mission & Beyond.
God has blessed PCB in past years and thousands of families have been touched by the love of Jesus through sacrificial giving of many donors. Our goal is to raise at least $120,000. As sufficient funds are raised to meet the need of the brick kiln outreach, love gifts may be shared with ministering servants and their families around the world as in past years. As always, a percentage (generally 10-20%) of all donations will be used to make a lasting PCB difference with a permanent project.
Your gift will touch a child or family living in abject poverty in Pakistan. Join the excitement and blessing of spreading love today!
PCB (in partnership with Africa Mission & Beyond) shares the love of God during the Christmas season by assisting children and families in underdeveloped countries. Through community-based partnership with businesses, churches, and families, gifts are provided to hundreds of impoverished children and families.
The target focus and distribution of PCB varies from year to year, but the purpose always remains the same: Delivering hope and expressing God’s love to needy children and families around the world through gifts and food in the Christmas season.
A $25 donation brings hope and cheer to a child who often faces very difficult circumstances in life. Gifts through the years have often included blankets, school supplies, toys, and food items. Gifts are chosen to meet the need of the specific people in their respective environments.
When these gifts are distributed, the story of Jesus and the message of salvation is shared. In some countries, resources are provided to cook and serve a Christmas meal for the children. Your donation and sacrifice has made and continues to make a difference.
