Facing religious persecution, the minority Hindu population from Pakistan has been fleeing and seeking refuge in India since the time of the partition. As radicalization increases in Pakistan, the number of people escaping atrocity also increases in the same proportion.
These persecuted people emigrate from Pakistan each year to escape discrimination, denial of equal development rights, violation of human rights and forced conversions. While in Pakistan, the girls felt unsafe, and all faced pressure to convert; one primary negative coping mechanism was to drop out of school. Most come from the Sindh province, where the Hindu population in Pakistan is concentrated. Primarily these migrants owned land and did farming in Pakistan. Generally, these refugees arrive on valid pilgrim visas and then seek extensions through long-term visasmonth after month. The Government of India has administrative arrangements for Pakistani Hindus; they may obtain long-stay visas but
are not considered refugees by the government.
Child sponsorship is a powerful way to make a difference in the life of a child living in poverty. Through child sponsorship, you can help provide a child with access to essentials like food, clean water, education, and healthcare. By sponsoring a child, you can allow them to break the cycle of poverty and build a brighter future for themselves and their communities.
When you sponsor a child, you will receive updates on their progress, including reports on their health, education, and overall well-being. You may even be able to correspond with your sponsored child, sending letters of encouragement and support.
Child sponsorship is a meaningful way to make a difference in a child’s life and benefits entire communities. When children have access to education and healthcare, they are better equipped to become productive members of society, improving the economic stability of their families and communities.
Consider sponsoring a child today and make a lasting impact on their lives and the lives of those around them.
