Rescue The Persecuted - ECSPE

Asad David’s journey from Pakistan to Thailand was marked by desperation and the pursuit of a safer life. Fleeing from persecution in his homeland in 2014, Asad sought refuge in Thailand, only to find himself in the clutches of a challenging immigration system.

Despite filing for asylum with the UNHCR, Asad’s troubles continued as he was arrested in Bangkok for being an illegal migrant. His time in the Immigration Detention Center (IDC) became a daunting chapter in his life, lasting for a grueling six months. The harsh conditions of the IDC, coupled with the uncertainty of his future, weighed heavily on Asad’s shoulders.

Hope, however, came in the form of Mr. Farrukh Saif, a compassionate Christian and a Founder of ECSPE, who recognized the plight of asylum seekers like Asad. Mr. Saif, understanding the urgency of the situation, decided to take action. He bailed Asad out of detention by paying a significant sum of 50,000 Thai Baht, offering the beleaguered asylum seeker a lifeline.

This act of generosity freed Asad from the confines of the detention center and instilled a renewed sense of hope in his heart.

Farrukh Saif

Farrukh H. Saif, a courageous Christian human rights activist, established the Farrukh Saif Foundation in 2009 to confront religious discrimination, blasphemy laws, and bonded slavery in Pakistan. His dedication to liberating bonded laborers from brick kilns and advocating for blasphemy victims and asylum seekers has garnered international acclaim. Despite encountering threats and fatwas, his impactful work persists in supporting marginalized communities. In 2018, the foundation merged with The Emergency Committee to Save the Persecuted and Enslaved, enhancing its global outreach.
