Modern Day Slaves-Parveen Bibi

Parveen, a brave woman with six children, has endured years of hardship working in a kiln. For as long as she can remember, the hard demands of the kiln owners dominated her family’s life. The endless hours of labor yielded little compensation, trapping them in a cycle of poverty. The oppressive conditions extended beyond the work itself; they were denied the simple joys of life and forbidden from attending family celebrations or mourning with loved ones during times of sorrow.

The treatment they received was harsh and inhumane, adding to their misery. However, a ray of hope emerged through our efforts when ECSPE (Emergency Committee to Save the Persecuted and Enslaved). our organization, dedicated to ending slavery and improving the lives of those who are being trapped in Slavery.

Listen to her story:

Naeem Masih:

Naeem Masih, a father of four, told us that the story is not different from Parveen’s story recounts the harsh conditions his family endured while working in a kiln for an extended period. Despite the demanding labor, they received only meager wages, faced severe restrictions on their movements, and were treated as slaves. They were even prohibited from attending church or visiting their families. Naeem and his family are profoundly grateful to ECSPE for liberating them from this oppressive situation and restoring their freedom.

Listen to His story:

Our intervention was transformative. We rescued both families from the clutches of slavery, offering them not just freedom but a fresh start. We have provided new homes, stable jobs, and all the necessary items to furnish these new houses, ensuring a smooth transition to a better life.

We request you to Join us in Rescuing and Saving the Lives of those who have been trapped in Slavery.
